Data type

Annual estimates were produced for access to drinking water and sanitation Facilities at the 5x5 km-level for 90 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) for 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using a geo-positioned dataset created from 634 household surveys. Survey sources used include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and UNICEF Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) series, and other country‐specific surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of drinking water and sanitation facility coverage percent (percent of people with the given type of access) and number (number of people with the given type of access)
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at zero, first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
