|Global Water Supply and Sanitation Assessment 2000 Report (UNICEF - WSSCC - WHO, 2000, 90 p.)|
|11. Northern America|
Data representing 99.9% of the Northern American population suggest that 99.9% of the population in the region has coverage for both water supply and sanitation, the highest reported for any world region.
According to the results of the Assessment 2000, there is a negligible proportion of the global population without access to improved water supply and sanitation services in the Northern American region.
The region is comprised of only five areas: Bermuda, Canada, Greenland, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, and the United States of America. More than three out of four people in the region live in urban areas. Urban coverage of water and sanitation are both reported to be 100% of the population. Nevertheless, approximately 71 000 people in rural areas do not have access to either improved water supply or sanitation.
