This report describes research examining production-adjusted measures of pollution prevention (P2). Under this research, a methodology was developed for applying statistical and graphical tools to assess the accuracy of the factors (called units-of-product) used to adjust P2 measures. Graphical analysis is used to qualitatively assess a unit-of-product, while regression analysis is used to quantitatively evaluate a unit-of-product. These statistical and graphical tools were applied to data from five case study facilities in different industrial sectors. The units-of-product currently being used by the facilities were tested for correlation with key waste of chemical use streams. It was found that the methodology for applying statistical and graphical tools was usable with data routinely collected at the five case study facilities. It was further found that the factors being used by four of the facilities correlate with chemical usage for key input streams.
