Victorian State School Gas Consumption 2008-09

Natural gas consumption measurements at State schools first became available via a pilot implementation of  a whole-of-Victorian-government environmental data system in DEECD in May 2013. While measurements are collected at a campus level, this dataset aggregates data geographically by Local Government Area (LGA). This aggregation not only ensures that individual schools remain unidentified, but also presents a summary of overall natural gas usage within particular geographic localities. In addition, median usage is presented instead of average (mean) values to account for extreme levels of consumption that can give a skewed indication of overall LGA usage.

It is important to note that in this dataset not all LGAs have figures against them: this may be due to insufficient or non-available data (for instance, not all schools use natural gas); or in the case where LGAs have a smaller number of schools, data may be left out to ensure individual schools or campuses are not identified.
