Impacts of Household Pattern on Carbon Emission

Chen Jiaying Peng Xizhe Zhu Qin  
This paper empirically analyzes the impact of household pattern changes on carbon emission in the period of 1978 to 2007. By modifying the extended STIRPAT model, we transform personal- scaled environmental impacts to household- scaled environmental impacts, and analyze the effects of household size, total number of households, household consumption, and energy intensity on carbon emission. The results show that household size and household numbers have greater impacts on emission, and the modified extended STIRPAT model can better explain the carbon emission. Given that households provide more sufficient information on consumption behavior, they may serve as a better measuring unit for fossil- fuel carbon emission than individuals do.
