Short summary
Access to clean and safe drinking water is a basic human right. Poor quality of drinking water is directly associated with various waterborne diseases. This study found that people in rural areas, with older household heads, and large family sizes are significantly less likely to utilize safe drinking water sources. Households with media exposure, education, women empowerment in household purchases, and belonging to the rich segment of society are more likely to utilize safe drinking water.
