Carbon Content of U.S. Industries and Products
Detailed estimates of the fossil-fuel carbon intensity of 426 U.S. industries and the more than 5,300 products they produce, ranging from electric utilities to cattle ranching. The data set consists of two easy-to-use Excel files, one for industries and one for products. All figures are developed using the Columbia Economics, L.L.C. Input-Output Model, and are based on the simulated impact of a $100/ton carbon tax on industry and product prices. (Preview the data here.) (Download methodology paper here.)


Detailed U.S. Input-Output Tables

Tables are formatted in easy-to-use Excel files, and are available in 134-by-134 industries, or highly detailed 426-by-426 industries. (Preview the data here.) (Download methodology paper here.)
