Description Format Details

Description

This data is organized by economic year, quarter and week. All values have been standardized.

Format

Data frame with 6 columns

EconYear

Year of the economic quarter. Because economic quarters are deemed to begin and end on week boundaries, this may not correspond exactly to the calendar year for the data.

quarter

Economic quarter.

week

Week within the quarter. The number of weeks in a quarter varies a bit (usually it's 13 or 14). Only weeks that exist for a quarter are included in the dataset.

petrol

Petroleum product consumption for the week. Given as a standardized value.

gas

Natural gas consumption in certain product categories (see details) for the week. Given as a standardized value.

dataset

Dataset the quarter was originally assigned to (training, dev, or test)

Details

Natural gas consumption is given only for the categories 'Industrial Consumption', 'Lease and Plant Fuel Consumption', and 'Pipeline & Distribution Use'. Specifically, natural gas for electrical generation is excluded because it would be redundant with the electicity data, and residential use is excluded because it is primarily temperature driven.
