Abstract

CO2 emission, a dominant problem for many countries is the result of several economic and social factors. The objective of this study was to analyze the impact of population and economic growth on CO2 in Afghanistan. IPAT model was employed for analysis. The data were tested for normality and multicollinearity with the help of Skewness and kurtosis as well as Durbin-Watson test of multicollinearity. The tests showed that the data were normal and the variables did not have multicollinearity. The results from the model show that both population and GDP per capita are positively correlated with CO2. The model derived from regression analysis states that 1% increase in population causes a 0.32% of growth in CO2 and so is for the opposite case. Furthermore, it adds that the coefficient value for GDP per capita, says that 1% change will cause 2.354% change in the amount of CO2.
