Latrine use among all SQUAT households

By r.i.c.e. November 13th, 2014

This pie chart shows the fraction of households in our study in which no one defecates in the open, everyone defecates in the open and some people defecate in the open. Data sources, like the Census, which only ask whether the household has “access” to a latrine, miss a large group of households for which latrine access exists, but not everyone in the household uses it.
