Population using improved water sources in Tanzania
The proportion of people in urban areas who use drinking water from improved sources has increased to 83 per cent in 2008, from 68 per cent in 1990 (Government of Tanzania 2008). While more than 80 per cent of people living in urban areas in Tanzania have access to clean drinking water, the figure drops to just over
one-third in the rural areas, thus bringing down the national average to about half of the population with access to safe drinking water.
