ABOUT THIS RELEASE
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.
This 2005 edition focuses on "Energy use and conservation". It covers a range of issues including sources of energy and fuel used in the dwelling, insulation, heating and cooling and greenpower. The number and usage of household appliances are also insluded.
Results from similar past surveys (1994, 1999 and 2002), where applicable, have been included in the publication for purposes of comparison.
