This is a measure of the carbon dioxide emissions for households per head of population. Domestic emissions represent emissions from energy consumption in and around the home, including emissions attributable to the use of electricity, but not activities by private individuals elsewhere, such as personal travel.

This sector can be influenced by the fuel types used, the type and condition of the housing (including its insulation), the average temperature (urban areas can be much warmer and therefore easier to heat than rural areas), average household size, type of household and the income and preferences of the occupiers.
