1 - INS estimate based on the population and on the ratios of waste production per capita (2008 based on 0.7 kg / d / h).
2 - Data refer to the amount of municipal waste generated.
3 - From 2005, increase in the amount of municipal waste can be explained by the increase in construction activity including demolition of buildings and damage due to hurricanes (falling trees etc), and the number of tourist arrivals and improvements in reporting.
4 - Data refer to total waste generation.

Environment Statistics Database

Source:  United Nations Statistics Division

The Environment Statistics Database contains selected water and waste statistics by country. Statistics on water and waste are based on official statistics supplied by national statistical offices and/or ministries of environment (or equivalent institutions) in countries in response to the biennial UNSD/UNEP Questionnaire on Environment Statistics. They were complemented by data on EU and OECD member and partner countries from Eurostat and OECD. With the following two exceptions, every country’s data are sourced from UNSD.
  1. All data are sourced from Eurostat for the following seven countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta and Romania.
  2. All data are sourced from OECD for the following 34 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, United States. However, for some variables (Precipitation, Actual evapotranspiration, Freshwater internal flow, Inflow of surface and groundwaters from neighbouring countries, Renewable freshwater resources, hazardous waste generated during the year), data for these 34 countries are sourced from Eurostat.
Choice of preferred data source between Eurostat and OECD is made in an attempt to have as much data availability as possible for the user and to capture as much data as possible for all UN member states.

Data are often sparse for some variables. The statistics selected here are those of relatively good quality and geographic coverage. The online database currently covers the years 1990, 1995 to 2015. For information on definitions, data quality and other important metadata, please check UNSD Environmental Indicator tables.
