his collection contains indoor end-use statistics for 140 households in metropolitan Adelaide and the associated demographics and appliance characteristics of the households. The end-use statistics were determined through flow trace analysis of a two week period of high resolution (10s) water usage data representative of winter use. The end-use statistics include the mean and standard deviation for the volume per person per day for each end-use and the relevant characteristics of the end-use: - Shower: Duration (mins), Frequency (events/person/day), Flow rate (L/min), Efficiency (star rating) - Toilet: Flush volume (L), Frequency (events/person/day), Efficiency (e.g. 3L/6L Dual) - Washing Machine: Volume per load (L), Frequency (events/household/week), Type (Front or Top loader) - Dishwasher: Volume per load (L), Frequency (events/household/week) - Tap: Duration (seconds), Frequency (events/person/day), Flow rate (L/min) - Bath: Volume per bath (L), Frequency (events/household/week) The demographics and household characteristics include: - Household occupancy - Age of occupants - Income - Perceived water conservation level This data was collected as part of the research program of the Goyder Institute for Water Research's Optimal Water Mix for Greater Adelaide project.
