Title: National Greenhouse Gas Industry Attribution Model
Abstract: The National Greenhouse Gas Industry Attribution Model is dynamic model that attributes US Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions as reported in the US GHG Inventory [1] to industry sectors as classified by the Bureau of Economic Analysis in the 2012 detail benchmark input-output tables [2]. The model is valid for years 2010-2016 and uses the EPA GHG Inventory published in 2018. Data quality score associated with the EPA DQ system [3] for data reliability and technological correlation are assigned as described in Yang et al. 2017, Supporting Information 1 [4]. This model builds upon the USEEIO v1.1 GHG satellite table [5] and the Yale Center for Industrial Ecology USEEIO extensions v2.1 [6]. See the Documentation sheet in the file for a summary table describing the industry attribution approach to each USEPA GHGI emission item. References 1. USEPA, 2020.
