This report uses the results of the survey to estimate the quantity of air emissions released as a result of residential wood heating throughout the province (excluding the LFV). To do this, the randomly sampled area responses were scaled up to represent the province. After this, emissionestimates were calculated for each provincial airshed, Ministry Regional Office, and the Province as a whole. Example calculations are provided as appropriate. It should be recognized that estimating emissions is one of the main intended uses of the survey data. Additional questions were asked regarding residential heating practices, likelihood of switching to wood heating, and general impressions regarding air quality. Each of these areas can also be interpreted as needed. A copy of the survey questions is in Appendix A.
