Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The current study examines the influence of social indicators on the consumption of electricity for eight urban marginal areas of the city if Guayaquil, by means of ordinary least square regression. For this purpose, domestic and electric indicators were obtained from the literature and after correlated with the natural log of average monthly electricity consumption. Results show that labor gives a negative coefficient, meaning that people work outside the home and that households with more women and elderly people consume more electricity.
