This JMP 2013 update presents country, regional and global estimates for the year 2011. Since the JMP 2012 update, which presented 2010 estimates, results of 230 surveys have been added to the JMP data base bringing the total number of surveys in the JMP data base close to 1,700. As is to be expected from an annual update, the global estimates hardly change. Drinking-water coverage in 2011 remains at 89% - which is one per cent above the MDG drinking-water target. In 2011, 768 million people relied on unimproved drinking-water sources.
