Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program

2013 Preliminary Dataset - Basic Plus Files

The TRI Basic Plus Data Files include eight file types that collectively contain all of the data fields from the TRI Reporting Form R and Form A (except Schedule 1). Files on this page are .zip files containing data presented in tab-delimited .txt format and load easily into many spreadsheet and database applications. These files will be updated several times between July and September as more reporting year 2013 TRI submissions are processed.  

For more information about using these files, see the TRI Basic Plus Data File Documentation (PDF). You may also refer to the 2013 TRI Reporting Forms and Instructions document for complete descriptions of the data fields. For general information about understanding and using TRI data, please see the Factors to Consider (PDF) guide.
