In turn, acid rain has become a major environmental problem due to harmful human activity. This has ultimately led to many negative effects that the output of acid rain generates. Primary data collection was not used in the composition of the review. Information from previous studies were used. The entirety of the data collection in the article was taken from various reports conducted previously by external researchers. The data published were in the formats of charts, tables and statistics.

It can be noted that the range of data collected was from countries including Japan, India and the United States.
