Percentage of Households that do not source Water from Piped Water Schemes

The map below shows the percentage of households in South Africa, who do not source their water from piped water schemes. These percentages are calculated at a local municipality level, using the 2011 Census Data (Statistics South Africa, 2012), and include water sourced directly from dams, pools, stagnant water, water tanks and boreholes. This total was then divided by the total number of households who responded to the water source questions in the census, to get a percentage.
