What is its purpose?
The indicator assesses the proportion of households who keep their latrines clean - an essential precondition for their use and for ensuring effective vector control.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Collect the following data by using observations of latrines owned by a representative number of the target group members:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTION (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1 for data collector: Is the household's latrine clean? (no faeces, urine, etc. present)
A1: yes / no
Calculate the indicator's value by dividing the number of households who keep their latrines clean by the total number of observed latrines and multiplying the result by 100.
1) In the case of communal sanitation facilities, the indicator can be changed to " % of communal sanitation facilities that are kept clean". This can be determined based on interviews with randomly selected users, key informant interviews and observations.
