Ceased dataset: Fuel Poverty

Department: Collected by local authorities, reported to DECC

Date ceased: Ceased in 2010-15 (source).

Official reason given: "DECC statisticians have developed a methodology that more accurately measures fuel poverty at a local authority level, and which doesn't impose a burden on local authorities. Local authorities are therefore no longer obliged to collect data for NI 187 unless they wish to for their own purposes." (source).
