BirthratesThe data used to create this figure is from the World Bank. The emissions figures are on a production basis, reflecting the industrial activities of each country, rather than the consumption basis which would be a better reflection of individual impact. However, following the current practices of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the World Bank only has the production numbers.
