1 Sum of major fuels.
2 Estimates adjusted to match the 1995 and 1999 CBECS definition of target population. Intensity per worker for 2003 is not reported because the 2003 figures do not include malls. More information available online: http://www.eia.gov/emeu/cbecs/comparesampdesign.html
3 Per employee during main shift.
4 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.
Sources: Energy Information Administration, Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Surveys, 1992, 1995, and 1999.
