Withdrawals for agriculture and industry are total withdrawals for irrigation and livestock production and for direct industrial use (including withdrawals for cooling thermoelectric plants). Withdrawals for domestic uses include drinking water, municipal use or supply, and use for public services, commercial establishments, and homes. Data correspond to the most recent year available for 1987-2002. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Value added > Constant 2000 US$ per capita: Agriculture corresponds to ISIC divisions 1-5 and includes forestry, hunting, and fishing, as well as cultivation of crops and livestock production. Value added is the net output of a sector after adding up all outputs and subtracting intermediate inputs. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or depletion and degradation of natural resources. The origin of value added is determined by the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), revision 3. Data are in constant 2000 U.S. dollars. Figures expressed per capita for the same year.
  • Agricultural methane emissions > % of total: Agricultural methane emissions (% of total). Agricultural methane emissions are emissions from animals, animal waste, rice production, agricultural waste burning (nonenergy, on-site), and savannah burning.
  • Livestock > Annual freshwater withdrawals, total > Billion cubic meters: Annual freshwater withdrawals, total (billion cubic meters). Annual freshwater withdrawals refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins.

Data correspond to the most recent year available for 1987-2002.
  • Produce > Root and tuber > Production per million: Average production of roots and tubers 1996-1998. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Produce > Cotton > Stocks: Stocks of cotton in mid 2003 (480 lb bales)
  • Annual freshwater withdrawals, domestic > % of total freshwater withdrawal: Annual freshwater withdrawals, domestic (% of total freshwater withdrawal). Annual freshwater withdrawals refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins. Withdrawals also include water from desalination plants in countries where they are a significant source.

Withdrawals for domestic uses include drinking water, municipal use or supply, and use for public services, commercial establishments, and homes. Data correspond to the most recent year available for 1987-2002.
  • Produce > Cereal > Land under cereal production > Hectares per 1000: Land under cereal production (hectares). Land under cereal production refers to harvested area, although some countries report only sown or cultivated area. Cereals include wheat, rice, maize, barley, oats, rye, millet, sorghum, buckwheat, and mixed grains. Production data on cereals relate to crops harvested for dry grain only. Cereal crops harvested for hay or harvested green for food or silage, and those used for grazing, are excluded. Figures expressed per thousand population for the same year.
  • Annual freshwater withdrawals, industry > % of total freshwater withdrawal: Annual freshwater withdrawals, industry (% of total freshwater withdrawal). Annual freshwater withdrawals refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins. Withdrawals also include water from desalination plants in countries where they are a significant source.
