Raw values were drawn from the EEA & ETC/SCP's NAMEA project. (The original calculations use Environmentally Extended Inout-Output Analysis (EE-IOA) on Material Flow Accounts for EU-27 as a block. DMI associated with 60 NACE product categories were then allocated to COICOP categories using a transformation matrix developed for the project). Intensities are calculated according to pressure per Euro at year 2000 purchasers prices. COICOP expenditures were taken directly from Eurostat figures
