Trends and statistics published in Defra pocket guide

A free pocket guide to environmental statistics and trends has been published by the Government. The Environment In Your Pocket 2007 (EIYP), produced annually, contains updated information on waste and recycling. It includes recently released WasteDataFlow statistics and key results from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) Survey of Public Attitudes and Behaviours Towards the Environment. It looks at environmental indicators of sustainable development, and has a section covering pressures on the environment, such as energy use, transport, pollution incidents and household consumption and how to reduce them. As a National Statistics publication and reference guide, the EIYP aims to be objective and balanced. Guide promoters said that: National Statistics are produced to high professional standards set out in the National Statistics Code of Practice. They are produced free from any political interference. The information is a concentration of key data from the e- Digest of Environmental Statistics and also includes UK Framework Indicators from the set of UK Government Sustainable Development Strategy indicators. A spokeswoman for Defra added: The EIYP is for everybody, we circulate it to school and libraries, its a handy piece of information. Contents also cover climate change, air quality, water quality, land use and wildlife. For more information visit
