Proportion of population using basic drinking water and sanitation services
|Unit of measurement||
Basic Services refer to public service provision systems that meet human basic needs including drinking water, sanitation, hygiene, energy, mobility, waste collection, health care, education and information technologies. This indicator is based on 9 components which are captured in various standalone indicators of the SDGs which each have their own indicator page.
This indicator is being used as an approximation of the UN SDG Indicator. Where possible, we will work to identify or develop UK data to meet the global indicator specification.
