Abstract – Tuhinga Whakarāpopoto
This study examines household-level energy expenditure data from the Household Economic Survey to determine which factors, statistically and economically, affect these expenditures. A comparison of expenditure in colder months relative to other months was utilised to gather a better understanding of the factors driving heating behaviour among NZ households.
