Story:

Energy consumption per capita is considered as one of the basic indicators of economic development of a country. It describes how much energy is used by each person per year in a given country 

Data Source:

Historical Energy Consumption statistics:

US EIA Historical Statistics for 1980-2011

 U.S. Energy Information Administration, International Energy Statistics, Go to EIA database data accessed 6th of August 2013.

Population (millions)

United Nations Statistics Division for 1980-2011

Context and definitions

Total primary energy consumption reported in this table includes the consumption of petroleum, dry natural gas, coal, and net nuclear, hydroelectric, and non-hydroelectric renewable electricity. Total primary energy consumption for each country also includes net electricity imports (electricity imports minus electricity exports).

Individual energy intensities are calculated by dividing the primary energy consumption in Mtoe (TSP calculation see: Primary Energy Consumption Statistics)  for each country and year by the gross domestic market exchange rates in billions of (2005) U.S. dollars and purchasing power parities in billions of (2005) U.S. dollarsfor each available country and year from United Nations Statistics Division.
