Fuel poverty statistics

This series brings together all documents relating to Fuel poverty statistics

Fuel poverty in England is measured using the Low Income High Costs (LIHC) indicator. Under the LIHC indicator, a household is considered to be fuel poor if:

  • they have required fuel costs that are above average (the national median level)
  • were they to spend that amount, they would be left with a residual income below the official poverty line.

There are three key elements in determining whether a household is fuel poor:

  • Household Income
  • Household Energy Requirements
  • Fuel Prices

The 2014 fuel poverty dataset and the associated English Housing Survey (EHS) data behind the statistics presented will be made available on the UK data archive later this summer.
