Household fuel type indicates the types of fuel used in occupied private dwellings, for heating purposes only (excludes cooking etc.). Fuel types that were used for at least some of the time are measured and does not indicate how long a particular fuel type was used or which was the most used fuel type.
Fuel type use is an infrastructure related topic and can look at the environmental sustainability of dwellings in a particular area, and also address topics such as particulate pollution and solar power uptake. Trends in this variable can be used to monitor energy use and efficiency and target new infrastructure projects.
The ability to heating to households is essential in the colder months and may be dependent on the age and type of the dwelling, as well as its location.
Please note: There has been a significant change to the Census question for this topic, please refer the specific data note for more information. Stats NZ has given Main types of heating and fuel types used to heat dwellings data for the 2018 Census a quality rating of "moderate". This indicates there may be some minor issues looking at the comparisons to 2013 and 2006. Users should avoid concluding that any change in the categories is purely due to real world change. See Stats NZ’s DataInfo+ for specific information on what this rating means and recommendations for use.
