Data comes from the Water Sector Development Programme (WSDP) reports. As Tanzania's financial year (FY) runs from July 1 to June 30, data is entered in the year for which that FY starts, e.g. data for FY2010-11 is entered in 2010 on WASHwatch. The WSDP has four components, one of which is Water Resource Management (WRM), and in each case WRM has been removed as WASHwatch only looks at water supply and sanitation. Both foreign and local contributions have been included.
There are a number of ways to measure the proportion of people that have access to sanitation and water in a country. Governments often use a combination of management information systems and household surveys.
The official data which the UN uses to monitor progress on the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) comes from the WHO / UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP). JMP aggregates data from household surveys carried out by governments.
WASHwatch.org shows JMP data because it is comparable across countries and uses the MDG definitions of access to sanitation and water. Some Governments prefer to quote the latest data from their household surveys, the best source of this information is the national statistics bureau or equivalent.
