Rural Homes Most Likely To Lack Running Water Or Plumbing
Rural homes are more likely to lack running water or adequate plumbing, and insufficient kitchens are even more common. They are also a problem in urban areas. Rates are per 1,000 households.
American homes are considered to lack adequate plumbing if they don't have one or more of the following: piped hot and cold water; a bathtub or shower; or a toilet. Kitchens are considered inadequate if they lack a refrigerator, a stove or range, or a sink with a faucet.
