Non-Hispanic whites are least likely to have inadequate plumbing to properly wash hands while stuck at home during the pandemic. They fare better than the national rate in each category. Rates are per 1,000 people.
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. Homes are considered overcrowded if they have more than one person per room. Hispanics can be of any race or races.
