The 2006 National Footprint Accounts (NFA) portion of the Compendium of Environmental Sustainability Indicator Collections, version 1.1 is a data set that measures how much land and water area a human population requires to produce the resources it consumes and to absorb its wastes under prevailing technology and management. It includes Footprints for cropland, grazing land, carbon, nuclear, ... forest, built-up and fishing ground for 147 countries. It also identifies countries that are considered to have ecological deficits and reserves. These data are drawn from the National Footprint Accounts, 2006 Edition, produced by the Global Footprint Network and distributed by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
The data in comma-separated values (CSV), SPSS (SAV) and Stata (DTA) formats and a data dictionary for all indicators and ancillary variables in Word (DOC), Portable Document Format (PDF), and Microsoft Access (MDB) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
