**WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program: Water Supply and Sanitation**

The water and sanitation series is developed using data from the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program for water supply and sanitation (JMP). The JMP reports country, regional and global estimates of progress on drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) from 2000 to 2015.

The WSS JMP dataset provides substantial information on water, sanitation and hygiene, broken into national, urban and rural subgroups. Within these subgroups, global estimates are provided that show the proportion of a country's population using improved and unimproved access to water, sanitation and hygiene. For the water dataset, IFs draws primarily on...... For the sanitation dataset, IFs uses the sanitation estimates to break the data down into the proportion of population (%) and the amount of people within a population. To construct these data series, IFs draws primarily on the population served with improved sanitation, unimproved sanitation, other unimproved sanitation, shared sanitation, and open defication sanitation.
