Title

Pain or Gain? A Spatial Analysis of Rural and Urban Energy Expenditures

Presentation Type

Poster Presentation

Abstract

Inequality has been core to sociology since the discipline’s founding. While sociology is not bereft of space-oriented research, most of the current research focuses on differential access to social and health services. Consistent with calls to consider space in inequality research, this study examines the energy-related pain (or gain) of residing in rural America. Preliminary analyses of the Residential Energy Consumption Survey suggest rural households experience less energy consumption-related pain than those of urban spatial scales.
