USEPA Air Pollutant Emissions Trends Data

Current emission trends data and the documentation of estimation methods are available via the links below. The latest version of the 1970 – 2017 data show the trends for Tier 1 categories which distinguish pollutant emission contributions among major source types. 

The trends shown are for criteria air pollutants (CAPs) and precursors covered by the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), excluding lead.  Lead emissions sharply declined after it was eliminated from gasoline and have remained low. 

As inventory methods are improved over time, for some emission sources and improved estimation method may be applied ‘backwards’ to previous year trend estimates.

National Annual Emissions Trend(1 pg, 98 K)  Criteria pollutants National Tier 1 for 1970 – 2018.

State Annual Emissions Trend(1 pg, 1 MB)  Criteria pollutants State Tier 1 for 1990 – 2017.

Trends Procedural Documentation –  Any changes in the data or methodologies used to estimate the emissions for a specific time period will continue to be noted in future updates.

Air Quality Trends Show Clean Air Progress

Nationally, concentrations of air pollutants have dropped significantly since 1990:

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) 8-Hour,  74%
  • Lead (Pb) 3-Month Average,  82% (from 2010)
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) Annual,  57%
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) 1-Hour,  50%
  • Ozone (O3) 8-Hour,  21%
  • Particulate Matter 10 microns (PM10) 24-Hour,  26%
  • Particulate Matter 2.5 microns (PM2.5) Annual,  39% (from 2000)
  • Particulate Matter 2.5 microns (PM2.5) 24-Hour,  34% (from 2000)
  • Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) 1-Hour,  89%
  • Numerous air toxics have declined with percentages varying by pollutant

During this same period, the U.S. economy continued to grow, Americans drove more miles and population and energy use increased.

 Air quality concentrations can vary year to year, influenced not only by pollution emissions but also by natural events, such as dust storms and wildfires, and variations in weather.

Tip Click pollutant names in the chart legend to hide or include trend lines, and hover over any line to display percentages above or below the most recent standard. Click the Emission Totals tab to view emission trends

Health Effects Breathing elevated levels of CO reduces the amount of oxygen reaching the body’s organs and tissues. For those with heart disease, this can result in chest pain and other symptoms leading to hospital admissions and emergency department visits.

Environmental Effects Emissions of CO contribute to the formation of CO2 and ozone, greenhouse gases that warm the atmosphere.
