  • Coal mine production
    • Labor hours Productivity
    • Average number of employees
    • Mine level data
  • Shipments of coal to the electric power sector
    • Price
    • Quantity
    • Heat content
    • Ash content
    • Sulfur content
    • By mine/plant
  • Imports and exports of coal
  • Coal consumption and quality
    • Price
    • Receipts
    • Stocks

The Coal Data Browser also has visualizations for pre-generated annual and quarterly reports on topics such as region-specific coal productivity and country-specific coal exports.

Each visualization can run an animation that displays the changes in the data over time.

All data sets and reports can be downloaded for further use and analysis.
