I am currently analyse energy use data patterns and household thermal efficiency for UK households. I am kindly requesting support on how I can access the household energy use data linkage in wave 8. Are there also other variables on energy use and thermal efficiency available in any data files that I can access across the waves. Thank you

Dear Munyaradzi Kucherera,

We asked for consent from participants to link that data at Wave 8, but since it can take some time to go through the process of linking data it is not yet available. I will try to find out if there is a estimated date when it may be released.

In the meantime, other questions which may help you from thr household questionnaire are the amount paid for energy, w_xpduely, w_xpelecy, w_xpgasy, w_xpoily and w_xsfly, central heating, w_heatch, and green energy questions, w_solar1-3 and etariff. There are also questionnaire modules on individual environmental behaviour Waves 1, 4 and 10:

Best wishes,

Dear Munyaradzi Kucherera,

I'm afraid we can't give an estimated date for this data as the linkage is still at an early stage.

Best wishes,
