    Exceedance of air quality limit values in urban areas

    The indicator shows the fraction of the EU-28 urban population that is potentially exposed to ambient air concentrations of certain pollutants (PM2.5, PM10, O3, NO2, SO2 and B(a)P)) in excess of the EU limit or target values (EU, 2004, 2008) set for the protection of human health; and to concentrations of these pollutants in excess of the WHO Guidelines (WHO, 2000, 2006).

    It also shows the evolution of urban background levels of PM2.5, PM10, O3 and NO2 at the European level.

    Municipal waste generation, total

    Total Municipal waste consists of waste generated by households primarily, but may also include similar wastes generated by small businesses and public institutions and collected by the municipality.

    Share of renewable energy in electricity

    Share of renewable energy in electricity. Renewable energy commodities, apart from geothermal energy, are drawn directly or indirectly from current or recent flows of the constantly available solar and gravitational energy.

    Municipal waste generated

    Municipal waste generation and treatment, by type of treatment method. (source: Eurostat, http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cache/metadata/EN/tsdpc240_esmsip.htm)

    Recycling of packaging waste

    'Recycling rate' for the purposes of Article 6(1) of Directive 94/62/EC means the total quantity of recycled packaging waste, divided by the total quantity of generated packaging waste. (Source: Eurostat, http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/tgm/table.do?tab=table&init=1&plugin=1&pcod...)

    Share of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption

    This indicator is calculated on the basis of data covered by Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 on energy statistics. Reporting countries provide additional information on renewable source not covered by the Regulation. This indicator may be considered an estimate of the indicator described in Directive 2009/28/EC because statistical systems in some countries are not yet fully developed to meet all the requirements of this Directive. More information about the renewable energy shares calculation methodology can be found on the Eurostat website.

    Total waste generated

    Total amount of waste generated by households and businesses, by waste category (EWC-Stat 4) and year.

    At-risk-of-poverty rate, by age group      

    The indicator is defined as the share of persons with an equivalised disposable income below the risk-of-poverty threshold, which is set at 60 % of the national median equivalised disposable income (after social transfers).

    Biochemical oxygen demand in rivers   

    This indicator is defined as the mean annual BOD5 in rivers, weighted by the number of measuring stations. BOD5 is is a measure of the amount of oxygen required by aerobic microorganisms to decompose organic substances in a water sample over a period of five days in the dark at 20°C.

    Components of domestic material consumption      

    The indicator Domestic Material Consumption (DMC) is defined as the total amount of material directly used in an economy. DMC equals Direct Material Input (DMI) minus exports. DMI measures the direct input of materials for the use in the economy. DMI equals Domestic Extraction (DE) plus imports.

    Consumption of certain foodstuffs per inhabitant    

    This indicator presents the gross human apparent consumption of some major food items (cereals, meat and fish). Gross apparent human consumption is a proxy indicator for the availability of food to the consumer but not of the actual consumption by households.

    Dispersion of regional employment rates, by sex   

    Dispersion of regional employment rates (total, females, males) measures the regional (NUTS level 2) differences in employment within countries and groups of countries (EU-25, euro area). The dispersion is expressed by the coefficient of variation of employment rates of the age group 15-64. It is zero when the employment rates in all regions are identical, and it will rise if there is an increase in the differences between employment rates among regions.

    Dispersion of regional GDP per inhabitant     

    The dispersion of regional GDP (at NUTS level 2 and 3) is measured by the sum of the absolute differences between regional and national GDP per inhabitant, weighted with the share of population and expressed in percent of the national GDP per inhabitant. The indicator is calculated from regional GDP figures based on the European System of Accounts (ESA95).

    Domestic material consumption by material

    The indicator Domestic Material Consumption (DMC) is defined as the total amount of material directly used in an economy. DMC equals Direct Material Input (DMI) minus exports and Domestic Extraction (DE) plus imports. (source: Eurostat, http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cache/metadata/EN/tsdpc230_esmsip.htm)

    Ecolabel licenses

    This indicator is defined as the number of Ecolabel or "EU Flower" licences in European countries. The Community Ecolabel is awarded to products and services with reduced environmental impacts. It is administered by the European Commission and receives the support of all EU Member States and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). Ecolabel criteria are discussed in the European Union Ecolabelling Board (EUEB) whose membership includes representatives from industry, environmental protection groups, consumer organisations and representatives for SMEs.

    Emissions of ammonia (NH3), by source sector       

    This indicator tracks trends in anthropogenic atmospheric emissions of ammonia by source sector.

    Emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), by source sector

    Emissions of particulate matter from transport    

    This indicator tracks trends in atmospheric emissions of particulate matter caused by transport. PM2.5 refers to particulate matter with a diameter of up to 2.5 micrometres. Particulate matter potential for causing health problems is directly linked to the size of the particles.
