Aversion to government latrines, by religion

By r.i.c.e. November 27th, 2014

Among Hindu latrine owners, those who own government latrines are much more likely to defecate in the open than those who have built their own latrines. On the other hand, there is not such a stark difference among Muslim latrine owners. Aversion to government latrines appears to be concentrated among Hindus.
