The U. S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA) provides Missouri energy statistics that include tables and charts illustrating Missouri energy consumption, prices and expenditures, as well as ranking these figures relative to other states. EIA also publishes data with respect to petroleum and other liquids, natural gas, coal, renewable and alternative fuels, nuclear energy and electricity. EIA’s State Electricity Profile outlines electricity generation and consumption in the United States. These statistics include the prices for fuel used for electric power, electricity production by source, usage, retail sales and emissions. The Electricity Data Browser allows users to access interactive data. In addition, EIA publishes analyses and projections.

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. The Missouri Economic Research and Information Center provides information on topics such as gross domestic product and employment. The U.S. Census Bureau allows users to query numerous data tables. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the primary source of a variety of economic data (including indices of inflation), provides a page with links to Missouri-specific data. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis is the primary source for estimates of Gross State Product and annual State Personal Income.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides online access to a database on Missouri power plant emissions. EPA provides a flexible query tool for retrieving the data that you need. EPA has collaborated with EIA to develop E-GRID, the Emissions and Generation Resource Integrated Database. E-GRID integrates data from numerous sources to provide data at the individual power plant level on generation mix and many types of air emissions.
