How many people still drink dirty water, or go to the toilet in the open? The Guardian newspaper used new data in these interactive maps to track global progress towards the millenium development goals on access to clean water and sanitation.
The mapped information displays interesting comparisons. For example, the United States and Egypt have the same percentage of population using an improved drinking water system (99%), but the US has 100% of population with access to improved sanitation facilities while Egypt has 95%.
