  • This is an updated version of Gütschow et al. (2016). Please use this version which incorporates updates to input data as well as correction of errors in the original dataset. For a detailed description of the changes please consult the CHANGELOG included in the data description document. This dataset combines several published datasets to create a comprehensive set of greenhouse gas emission pathways for every country and Kyoto gas covering the years 1850 to 2014 and all UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) member states as well as most non-UNFCCC territories. The data resolves the main IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) 1996 categories. For CO₂ from energy and industry time series for subsectors are available. List of datasets included in this data publication: (1) PRIMAP-hist_v1.1_06-Mar-2017.csv: With numerical extrapolation of all time series to 2014. (only in .zip folder) (2) PRIMAP-hist_no_extrapolation_v1.1_06-Mar-2017.csv: Without numerical extrapolation of missing values. (only in .zip folder) (3) PRIMAP-hist_v1.1_data-format-description: including CHANGELOG (4) PRIMAP-hist_v1.1_updated_figures: updated figures of those published in Gütschow et al.
