A study was conducted in two districts of Haryana state to assess the general profile, socio-economic status of the residents and their knowledge about the carbon footprint during heating and cooking. The study was carried in two districts viz. Hisar and Sonipat of Haryana state. Two localities from each district were selected randomly for accessing the general profile and socio-economic status of the people. Under Hisar district, Professor Colony and Azad Nagar and; under Sonipat district, Mayur vihar and Shashtri Nagar was selected randomly for sampling.
