Greenhouse Gas Inventory Data Explorer

The Data Explorer is an interactive tool that provides access to data from EPA's annual Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks. You can follow the instructions on the right and use the options below to create customized graphs, examine trends over time, and download the data. You can visit other EPA pages to learn more about EPA's national inventory and how it relates to EPA's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program.

Infographic shows percentage U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions in 2018: 3% Fluorinated gases, 7% Nitrious oxide (N2O), 10% Methane (CH4), and 81% Carbon dioxide (CO2); Total percentage U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions by Economic Sector in 2018: 28% Transportation, 27% Electricity, 22% Industry, 10% Agriculture, 7% Commercial, 6% Residential. *Percentages may not add to 100% due to independent rounding and the way the inventory quantifies U.S. territories (not shown) as a separate sector.
Create a graph by choosing options from the four dropdown menus above. Within each graph, you can click the legend to turn layers on or off, and you can hover your mouse over the display to reveal data. See "How to Use this Tool" above to learn more.
