Household Energy Insecurity Survey
Authors: Sanya Carley, David Konisky, Trevor Memmott
The Household Energy Insecurity Survey provides insight into low-income American households' ability to pay their monthly energy bills, the receipt of shutoff notices, and the occurrence of utility disconnections. The survey also documents other energy-related material hardships including ways in which people cope with the costs and uncertainty of reliable energy service. Energy Justice Lab administered the survey in partnership with YouGov in January 2022 and the survey covers the winter months of November 2021 to January 2022.
