Each report may provide information concerning how the user perceives the comfort level of the user's environment at the time the user supplies the information. The computer data processing system may determine and generate the control information for controlling how the environmental control system controls the environment based on the information concerning how each user perceives the comfort level of the user's environment at the time each user provides the information. In addition or instead, the computer data processing system may determine and generate such control information based on the information concerning how a user perceives the comfort level of the user's environment at the different times the user supplies the information.
