Les déterminants du choix d'approvisionnement en eau des ménages de Dakar

The purpose of this article is to explain the choice of water supply by urban households using microdata from Dakar (Senegal). Using data on 301 households, we estimate a bivariate Probit model to explain household’s decision to rely on a private water connection at home or/and to get water from the public standpipe. This article contributes to the still short literature on households’ water supply in Africa. In particular, we show that the household head status (being a widow) as well as quality of the supply service have a significant impact on households’ choices.
