Global environmental emissions estimate: Application of multiple imputation
Miyama, Eriko & Managi, Shunsuke (2014) Global environmental emissions estimate: Application of multiple imputation. Environmental Economics and Policy Studies, 16(2), pp. 115-135.
A new database called the World Resource Table is constructed in this study. Missing values are known to produce complications when constructing global databases. This study provides a solution for applying multiple imputation techniques and estimates the global environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) for CO2, SO2, PM10, and BOD. Policy implications for each type of emission are derived based on the results of the EKC using WRI. Finally, we predicted the future emissions trend and regional share of CO2 emissions. We found that East Asia and South Asia will be increasing their emissions share while other major CO2 emitters will still produce large shares of the total global emissions.
