(% of population)


We establish this indicator to monitor fuel poverty although it is necessary to analyse the joint evolution of the four indicators established by the European Observatory on Fuel Poverty: 1) percentage of the population unable to maintain an adequate temperature at home; 2) percentage of the population in arrears with bill payments; 3) percentage of households whose energy expenditure is excessively low (hidden fuel poverty) and 4) percentage of households whose expenditure on energy supplies is disproportionate to the level of income.
