Estimation of carbon emissions by Ward (consumption based approach)

A group of data sets that show the emissions from five different sectors or consumption: Housing (domestic buildings), Transport, Food/diet, Consumption of other goods and services, and waste.

These have been estimated by using a range of private and public datasets and process that attempts to follow a carbon footprinting methodology wherever the data allows.

The sources of data used to calculculate these emissions include the following:

  • BEIS sub-national electricity consumption statistics, postcode and LSOA level data 2018.

  • BEIS sub-national mains gas consumption statistics, postcode and LSOA level data 2018.

  • Carbon Emissions Conversion Factors used in “UK's carbon footprint: annual greenhouse gas and carbon dioxide emissions relating to UK consumption”.

  • Display Energy Certificate data (2020).

  • Domestic Energy Performance Certificate data (2020).

  • English Housing Survey (2018).

  • Experian ConsumerView.

  • Experian Mosaic Public Sector.

  • Greenhouse gas reporting: conversion factors 2020.

  • Living Costs and Food (LCF) Survey 2014-2018.

  • Local authority collected waste management - annual results.

  • National Household Model.

  • National Travel Survey 2002-2019.

  • Non domestic Energy Performance Certificate data (2020).

  • ONSPD data (urban/rural identification of locations).

  • Road transport energy consumption at regional and local authority level.

  • Sub-national total final energy consumption data 2018.

  • UK local authority and regional carbon dioxide emissions national statistics.

Similar data has also been produced for Parishes across England and is presented in a separate standalone tool, which is available here:
