The U. S. Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration (EIA) provides a Missouri energy statistics site that includes tables and charts illustrating Missouri energy consumption, prices and expenditures and ranking them relative to other states.
In addition to charts, comparisons and profiles of Missouri energy statistics, EIA publishes tables of comprehensive energy statistics for Missouri in Adobe Acrobat format. These tables are taken from EIA's annual State Energy Data System.
Missouri researchers who want to do their own analysis of state energy statistics developed by EIA can also download Missouri energy data in comma-delimited format that can be read into spreadsheets or databases. This data is the source for the Division of Energy's "At a Glance" series of publications.
Natural Gas, Petroleum and Electricity
EIA’s State Electricity Profile outlines electricity generation and consumption in the United States. The EIA statistics for electric generation include the prices that Missouri utilities pay for fuel and the emissions that result from burning these fuels to generate electricity. The statistics on consumption include end use, expenditures and prices.
Missouri researchers who want to do their own analysis of petroleum, natural gas or electricity statistics collected by EIA can access petroleum database files, natural gas database files and electricity database files online. Data at these sites is frequently more current than data included in EIA publications and are used in the Energy Center’s "At a Glance" series of publications.
The Division of Energy Bulletins report current Missouri price survey data for propane, heating oil, and transportation fuel. Missouri Energy Bulletins are published monthly during the summer months and bi-monthly during winter months.
Sources of Missouri Demographic, Economic and Environmental Data
Missouri energy data is made more meaningful by relating it to other demographic, economic or environmental data.
The Missouri Energy Resource Assessment catalogs publicly available information about the variety of Missouri’s energy resources including fossil fuel resources, as well as energy efficiency and renewable resources.
The Missouri Census Data Center (MCDC) consists of a number of libraries and state-sponsored research offices in Missouri. MCDC provides links to Missouri-specific demographic, economic and geographic data from a variety of sources.
The University of Missouri-Columbia Economic and Policy Analysis Research Center publishes comprehensive Missouri demographic and economic statistical data. Tables that summarize Missouri energy use, prices and expenditures are also available here. These energy statistics are primarily based on EIA data. This online site will replace the Statistical Abstract for Missouri previously published by the University of Missouri-Columbia.
The U.S. Census Bureau, the primary source of demographic data from Census 2000, provides a page dedicated to Missouri-specific demographic data.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the primary source of a variety of economic data including indices of inflation, provides a page with for links to Missouri-specific data.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides online access to a database that contains data on Missouri power plant emissions at various levels of detail. On the same page, EPA provides a flexible query toll for retrieving the data that you need. EPA has also posted estimates of 1999 mercury emissions from power plants.
Finally, EPA has collaborated with EIA to develop E-GRID, the Emissions and Generation Resource Integrated Database. E-GRID integrates data from more than 20 sources to provide data at the individual power plant level on generation mix and four types of air emissions: nitrogen oxide (NOX), sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon dioxide (CO2), and mercury (Hg).
