Previous chapters of the book have focused on how to combine aggregate input-output data and energy flows to calculate energy intensities of broad sectors and use these calculated intensities in conjunction with micro-level disaggregate household survey data to analyse variations in direct and indirect energy use patters across different types of households. Households were distinguished in terms of their location (rural/urban, different states), economic status, demographic characteristics, educational and employment status, and different attributes of the dwelling area they live in. This chapter focuses, more specifically, on linkages between energy and well being at the household level. Well being is defined broadly in terms of economic status, socio-economic, and health parameters. In particular, variations in patterns of direct energy requirements and indirect energy requirements of food items, across different groups of households are examined. The two dimensions of direct energy use that are examined are access to different sources and actual use. Access to clean and efficient direct energy sources at the household level is assessed in relation to location and expenditure levels and trends in terms of the patterns of direct energy consumed are examined. Patterns of food consumption are seen through the lens of indirect energy requirements of food consumption in households. These indicators, in turn, are looked at in relation to monetary measures of well being and poverty such as per capita expenditures, sufficiency in terms of adequate nutrition or caloric content of food consumed, and other measures of human development and well being such as health and education.
