1 Sum of major fuels. Weather-adjusted energy consumption for 1999 is not reported because 1999 CBECS does not estimate energy consumption for space heating, space cooling, and ventilation.
2 Estimates adjusted to match the 1995 and 1999 CBECS definition of target population. More information available online: http://www.eia.gov/emeu/cbecs/comparesampdesign.htm
3 Laboratory buildings are included in the "Other" category.
Q = Data withheld because the Relative Standard Error was greater than 50 percent or fewer than 20 buildings were sampled.
