Source of energy for cooking was the outcome variable in our study. The census asked questions about the type of energy used for household lighting and cooking. The question that sought information on cooking was: “What source of energy does this household mainly use for cooking?”. The sources of energy captured during the 2014 census were national grid electricity, solar electricity, generator electricity, thermal plant electricity, gas, kerosene, charcoal, firewood, cow dung, grass, and others. Owing to extremely low frequencies on some sources, re-coding of energy source was done during analysis to yield four major categories, namely, charcoal, firewood, electricity, and ‘others.' The latter category includes gas, kerosene, grass, reeds, and cow dung. Energy for cooking, the dependent variable, was analyzed with several independent variables. These were age, sex, marital status, level of education, economic activity, type of dwelling unit, number of rooms in dwelling unit, shelter floor material, and toilet facility.
