Re: Updates on Swachh Bharat Mission, SBM (India)

Hi Elisabeth,

This is the official dashboard - 
http://sbm.gov.in/SBMReport/Home.aspx
However, WaterAid did a study in 2016 where the results were markedly different, even though it was much earlier in the programme. RICE did a survey in 2018 (survey attached here).
In January or February, the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation's National Statistical Organisation released another report. It is available here:  http://mospi.nic.in/sites/default/files/publication_reports/Report_584_final_0.pdf
Quoting: About 71.3 percent of the households in the rural areas and about 96.2 percent of the households in the urban areas had access to latrine. It may be noted that there may be respondent bias in the reporting of access to latrine as question on benefits received by the households from government schemes was asked prior to the question on access of households to latrine. The link is here . (if this doesnt work please email me.)

I wrote about this last year. Also attached.
Hope this helps. In the statistical jugglery, one thing stands out. In the SBM dashboard, 100% coverage is qualified to mean self-declared coverage, not verified. Nothing else has moved on that front. Earlier, the dashboard (link above) marked in green states that had 90% coverage, now it is 70%.
Hope this helps. Took me a while to assemble all this.
Regards
Nitya
