UN Data: Environment Statistics: Waste

Metadata Updated: April 11, 2014

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 OECD and Eurostat. Environment statistics is still in an early stage of development in many countries, and data are often sparse. The statistics selected here are those of relatively good quality and geographic coverage. The online database currently covers the years 1990, 1995 to 2009. For information on definitions, data quality and other important metadata, please check UNSD Environmental Indicator tables.Last update in UNdata: 19 Sep 2011Next update in UNdata: Jul 2013
