Classification and coding process

Classification criteria

The criteria used to classify Energy Types Used in Private Dwellings, is the energy type(s) (in their initial state) that are used:

  • to heat space in a private dwelling
  • or cooking in a private dwelling
  • for water heating in a private dwelling

Classification

Energy Types Used in Private Dwellings is a hierarchical classification with 2 levels. It has nine categories at the highest level and 26 categories at the second level – excluding residual categories.

The residual categories, and the not further defined (nfd) and not elsewhere classified (nec) codes, including examples, are defined in Glossary and references.

The full classification is available in the 'Available files' section on the main page.

Coding process

Respondents are asked to tick as many boxes as they need to show the energy types used in the dwelling. No priority is given to any one response.
