Raw values were drawn directly from the EEA & ETC/SCP's NAMEA project. (The original calculations use Environmentally Extended Input-Output Analysis (EE-IOA) on Eurostat input-output tables and air emissions accounts for EU-27 as a block. Pressures associated with 60 NACE product categories were then allocated to COICOP categories using a transformation matrix developed for the project. Direct emissions from households were also allocated using a simple transformation of emissions from mobile sources to 07 Transport, emissions from stationary sources to 04 Housing and emissions from other sources to 09 Recreation and culture. Intensities are calculated according to pressure per Euro at year 2000 purchasers prices. COICOP expenditures were taken directly from Eurostat figures.)
