Method of data collection and data needed to compute the method:

Similar methods as used in Metric 3 are suggested for this metric.

Unit of analysis:

The community, district, or administrative region is the unit of analysis.

Limitations regarding estimating and interpreting:

Because this metric is an aggregation of household level data, it is important to ensure consistent understanding of the question by respondents and consistent meaning behind their responses. See Metric 3 discussion about subjective responses to the concept of “adequate” fuel.
