How and when should I round emissions data?
1) Each value reported in the XML file should be rounded to the appropriate number of decimal places for the field. See the EM reporting instructions for the correct number of decimal places to round each reported value.
2) Raw emissions data should be rounded to the appropriate number of decimal places in the field prior to using them in any calculations.
3) When using any reported number in a subsequent calculation, use the rounded number. (This is the main difference in the rounding conventions between QA data and emissions data).
