At the community or landscape scale, the percent of households with sufficient fuel provides information on the overall availability of fuel. See the discussion in Metric 3 about defining energy security.
How to operationalize the metric
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.
