Census statistics have been used to derive the following Millennium Development Goal indicators. Other poverty indicators will be derived from a Household Income and Expenditure (Economic) survey, planned to be conducted in 2006. Preparation for this survey is currently in progress.
|Access to safe sustainable access to improved drinking water (% households)*||84.5||49.8||62.3||76||32.7||47.9|
|Proportion of population with access to improved sanitation (% households)*||67.6||40.7||50.5||32.9||21.5||24.4|
|Proportion of households with access to secure tenure (owned or rented)**||91.2||92.8||92.2|

Notes: Above table is based on households not population.
* All sources of water and types of sanitation methods were combined in the Census question, so this is an indication only (ie households stated all sources of water available).
** Secure tenure is based on land ownership of the main house (personal, family, leased), insecure tenure is 'other' ownership
