Abstract
Nationally representative household surveys are the main source of data for tracking drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) coverage. However, all survey point estimates have a certain degree of error that must be considered when interpreting survey results for policy and decision making. In this article, we develop an approach to characterize and quantify uncertainty around WASH estimates. We apply it to four countries – Bolivia, Gambia, Morocco and India – representing different reg...
