Some 41.1 per cent of the country's total households are using sanitary toilets, according to the latest statistics of the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS).

Of the total households, some 35.3 per cent are using Pit latrine, while 20.8 per cent are using katcha latrine, showed the BBS estimation.

So, only 2.7 per cent of the total households have no toilet facility.

The scenario of the country’s household toilet facility is unveiled in the report of the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS) 2015-16. 

“There exist wide urban-rural variations in the access to toilet facility,” said the report.

In the city corporation area, 78.9 per cent households are using sanitary toilet while the ratio is 57.5 per cent in the urban areas and only 30.6 per cent in the rural area. 

“Pit and Katcha latrine was very much dominated in the rural areas compared to urban and city corporation areas,” the report added.
