Abstract
This study analyzed the electricity consumption of single-person households in Korea and examined whether the determinants of electricity consumption varied by age. The study analyzed the physical characteristics, demographic and economic characteristics, and electricity consumption characteristics. The sample included 1,035 single-person households; it was drawn from the 2014 Korea Energy Consumption Survey. Descriptive statistics revealed differences in most characteristics by age. The results of multiple regression showed that there were no common factors affecting average monthly power consumption in all age groups. However, two factors, average monthly income and the number of heating devices, had the greatest effect on electricity consumption for elderly single-person households. © 2018 American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences
