Data taken from WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme on Water Supply and Sanitation publication \"Progress on sanitation and drinking-water – 2010 Update\", available from http://www.who.int/water_sanitation_health/en/.



Data refers to % of population with piped water on premises.



Note: Every time a new WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme on Water Supply and Sanitation report comes out, it supersedes all previous reports and the data contained therein. Hence the new time series is the most accurate and updated one and they should not be mixed with the previous ones.
