This publication presents information on environmental behaviour and practices of Australian households. Three environmental themes are rotated over three years: energy use and conservation, waste management and transport use, and water use and conservation. Data are collected from households and individuals via the ABS' monthly population survey.

The 2007 edition focuses on 'Water use and conservation'. It presents data on sources of water in dwelling, the use of water and water saving measures used in households. Data on use of rainwater tanks and greywater are also included.

Results from similar past surveys since 1994, where applicable, have been included in the publication for purposes of comparison.
