My data is reported at the household level (i.e. electricity consumption for the whole house) but it also has some descriptive data of the individuals within the household (i.e. there are 2 individuals in household A, aged 15 and 45).
What is the best method do determine what impact 15 year olds have on electricity consumption? Or similar question?
My initial approach was create some categorical variables with age bins and then estimate their impact using a linear regression. But I'm eager to hear of plausible alternative methods, perhaps a states based alternative?
Thanks for the help!
