Research Report

The research report includes an explanation of:

  • Census Output Areas
  • Office for National Statistics (ONS) Urban and Rural Areas classification
  • The methodology used for constructing the datasets on:
    1. take-up of HEES grants
    2. access to gas
    3. solid wall properties
    4. combined 'hard to treat' indicator
  • Statistical analyses of the association between 'rurality' and the above four factors

CSE considers it would be useful to investigate the relationship between the four factors and fuel povertyat the small area level. This could use the small area fuel poverty indicator it is developing for the Welsh Assembly Government as part of a separate project.
