HOUSING FUEL CONSUMPTION AND JOURNEY TO WORK PATTERNS OF MINORITIES: THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR FEDERAL ENERGY POLICIES

This report attempts to examine housing fuel and transportation costs for black heads of households based on responses to the National Urban League's (NUL) 1979 national survey of blacks entitled Black Pulse. Using the NUL Black Pulse survey as the primary data source, the cost and level of energy consumption is profiled for three strata of black households. The general methodology and scope of the survey is presented followed by separate descriptions of housing conditions and fuel costs as well as estimates of the cost and consumption of fuel used for transportation to work.
