Methodology

Uncertainty

  • Methodological and data uncertainty

Use of factors of the acidifying property potential leads to some uncertainty. Furthermore, national emission factors obtained by measurements in the Republic of Macedonia are used only in energy sector. For other sectors, standard emission factors from the EMEP/EEA Guideline are used for the inventory of air pollutants. It has been assumed that the factors are representative for Europe as a whole; different factors may be estimated at local level. Comprehensive discussion on uncertainty of these factors can be found in deLeeuw (2002). As far as activity installment is concerned, uncertainty arises from data taken from Statistical Yearbook and other sources. Definition of activity installment which is not required form, expert estimations containing uncertainty are made.
