Provisional figures for 1 year previous published in March, i.e. data for 2014 published in March 2015; Final figures for 2 years previous published in February, i.e data for 2013 published in February 2015.
Note that provisional figures are subject to revision when the final figures are published; however, they provide an early indication of emissions in the most recent full calendar year. The majority of provisional figures are within 2% of the final figures.

These are a small number of broad, high-level sectors, and are as follows: energy supply, business, transport, public, residential, agriculture, industrial processes, land use land use change and forestry (LULUCF), and waste management.
