It is significant to discuss the carbon emissions in household consumption to achieve the goal of energy conservation and emission reduction. Based on the CLA analysis method, this paper calculates the carbon emissions of Chinese households in 2015 from a micro perspective, and analyzes the characteristics and structure of household carbon emissions at different income levels in different regions. The results show that most household carbon emissions come from direct energy, food, medical and daily necessities consumption, and the proportion of these three factors in household total carbon emissions gradually decreases with the increase of income level. At the regional level, the increase in income level does not necessarily lead to an increase in carbon emissions. Household carbon emissions and carbon emission structure fluctuate with income in a certain trend.
