Open defecation among toilet owners, by type of latrine

By r.i.c.e. November 13th, 2014

For both male and female toilet owners, people who live in households with a latrine that was built with government support are more than twice as likely to defecate in the open than are people who live in households with a latrine that was constructed by the household itself.
