Hi everyone. I published my paper about household's energy preferences and I obtained the following interesting results:

We examine several factors affecting households' energy preferences in Turkey.
Monthly income of households has significant effect on energy choices.
Ages of persons have also influence on energy choices.
Health concerns easiness in use is important choice factor for old households.
Urban and rural dwellers choose natural gas and conventional fuels, respectively.

I would like to share the link, if you like to read it

Economic and demographic determinants of household energy use in Turkey

Is that the paper..?
""The most important finding of the study is that monthly income of households or household welfare in general has significant effect on energy choices.""

So, there is basic similarity across the globe... ;)
