1) The revisions to the 1990 amount of emissions have been calculated based on the assigned amount confirmed in the review of the report on the first commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol compiled in 2006, the revisions for all other years have been calculated on the official figures of the year in question
2) Proxy estimate figures have been calculated using different methods than the preliminary and official figures
3) The official figures are amounts that have been reported under the Climate Convention and the Kyoto Protocol for the years in question
4) The emission figures for greenhouse gas inventory are revised every year in the entire time series, because continuous improvements are made to the inventory, taking into account the international review recommendations of inventories and the development of the scientific basis for emission calculation methods
5) The revision compares figures of the latest release with the figures of the first release
6) Also includes the emissions of domestic civil aviation, although the emissions in question are in the emissions trading scheme of the EU's internal civil aviation
7) Proxy estimate
