This chart reflects responses to Question #25 from the Spring 2020 and Winter 2020 surveys, which asked “On a scale of 1-5, how energy efficient do you think your home is?” This was a check-all-that-apply question, and there were 164 cumulative responses. The options for this question were as follows:
1, my home is very energy inefficient
2, my home is not energy efficient
3, my home is OK
4, my home is fairly energy efficient
5, my home is very energy efficient
The most common response was “3, my home is OK”, with 81 individuals selecting this option, followed by “2, my home is not energy efficient”, with 31 individuals selecting this option. Twenty-nine individuals selected “4, my home is fairly energy efficient”, 17 individuals selected “5, my home is very energy efficient”, and 11 individuals selected “1, my home is very energy inefficient”. It’s important to note that some individuals selected multiple options within the same response.
The data was produced by the Shifting Energy Demands in COVID-19 Survey, which has been administered to 169 people over two time periods. The Spring 2020 survey was administered to 86 people between May and June, and the Winter 2020 survey was administered to 83 people between December 2020 and March 2021. Visit the Shifting Energy Demands in COVID-19 - Spring + Winter 2020 Survey Results page to view more data from our survey. The project is approved by Drexel’s IRB.
