The GreenLiving database measures Canadians’ attitudes regarding household-related environmental issues. Created from a sample of respondents from Statistics Canada’s Households and the Environment Survey, GreenLiving focuses on household consumption and conservation of energy and water, as well as such activities as composting, pesticide use, household hazardous waste disposal, and the use of gas-powered recreation equipment. Such information, available at the postal code and dissemination area levels, can be used by city planners and utility companies to locate key infrastructure projects and design energy conservation programs.
