Homework Help: statistics

Posted by Kelly on Sunday, January 10, 2010 at 4:03am.

Burning fuels in power plants or motor vehicles emit carbon dioxide, which contributes to global warming. Table 1.3 displays CO2 emissions per person from countries with populations of at least 20 mil.

Why do you think we choose to measure emissions per person rather than CO2 emissions for each country?

I know this is a really simple question, but for some reason I just don't get it. My guess for why they do it per person would be because they want to see how much each person contributes in a country, rather than how much the country is in total? I don't really get why this is being asked because I feel like measuring emission per person or country is both good...
