My talking head: Facts and figures from CNN-IBN

Blog Post1 min read

Last night – somewhat against my better judgment as a statistical economist, not a TV star – I accepted Sagarika Ghose’s kind invitation to be on her State of the Nation TV program on CNN-IBN. I was honored to be part of a fascinating panel discussing the enduring problems around sanitation in India.

You can see the video of the approximately half-hour program here:

For today’s blog post, I thought I would provide the evidence for some of the facts and figures I cited last night. Of course, regular readers will already know well the research on our sanitation and height conference tabs.
