What is its purpose?
This sub-indicator was designed by ECHO as a part of its Key Outcome Indicators (KOI). It measures the proportion of the target population who perceive that their most essential WASH needs were met.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of your target population:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: Is the amount of water you can access sufficient for drinking, cooking and the most basic hygiene needs?
A1: yes / no
Q2: Do you have access to safe toilets?
A2: yes / no
Q3: Do you have access to the most basic hygiene items, such as bathing and laundry soap?
A3: yes / no
To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of respondents who replied “yes” to all three questions by the total number of respondents. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
Disaggregate the data by gender and specific vulnerable groups, such as people with disability.
