% of population with access to improved water source against Malnutrition prevalence among children under 5
The visualization brings forth a negative correlation between these two aspects. Higher the % of population with access to improved water source, lower is the malnutrition prevalence. However, like all datasets, this too has outliers. India and Bangladesh, despite having nearly 80% of the population with access to improved water source, have a high rate of malnutrition prevalence (about 45%). Most of the South Asian countries fare poorly in terms of malnutrition among children. Clearly, more steps need to be taken to eradicate malnutrition prevalence from this region.
Ethopia and Niger of the sub Saharan region have the worst record of all – about 40% of the children suffer from malnutrition.
