Fuel poverty is a devolved issue, with each nation in the UK having its own fuel poverty definition. Due to both definitional and methodological differences, fuel poverty is not published for the UK level.

Latest data for each of the four nations is available at the following links:

England: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/annual-fuel-poverty-statistics-report-2019

Scotland: https://www.gov.scot/publications/scottish-house-condition-survey-2017-key-findings/
