Project Title:
Statistical Analysis of 2008 National Emission Inventory

Sponsoring Office:
Office of Air and Radiation, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, Air Quality Assessment Division

Project Overview:
The National Emissions Inventory (NEI) is EPA’s compilation of estimates of air pollutants discharged on an annual basis and their sources. The compilation includes emissions estimates submitted by state, local, and Tribal air pollution control agencies, estimates calculated by EPA, and emissions obtained from other sources. EPA is maintaining emission inventory data for the 2008 NEI. Under this project, the fellow will design and implement statistical analyses of these data. The statistical analyses may include, but are not limited to:

Project Goals:
The goal of this project is for the fellow to develop a robust understanding of the data in the Draft 2008 NEI through the use of various statistical analyses.

Final Product of the Project:
The fellow will develop a report documenting the statistical analyses undertaken and the results of these analyses. The report may include, but is not limited to: (1) a description of the analytical techniques used; (2) findings of the analyses presented in the appropriate format (text, tables, graphs, maps, and similar designs); and (3) an overall assessment of the data.

Project Location:
EPA Headquarters, Research Triangle Park, NC
