Introduction.. The main challenge is to increase the number of drinking water connection to the households. Take an integrated view of the water supply in urban and rural areas. Source Dataset: Female Headed Households Classified by Source and Location of Drinking Water and availability of Electricity and Latrine
Idea.. Creativity at its Best Summing of all the household getting water supply from tap water (Treated and Untreated) for within and near premises This is done for urban and rural data. Get the percentage of households getting water supply from any specific source with respect to all sources Above calculation is used to get top performing states.
In mathematical terms… Percentage=Num/Denom Where Num=Sum of number of households using tap water from within and near premises , treated and untreated source Denom=Sum of number of households from all sources. Sum of treated and untreated water users are taken as water suitable for drinking.
Usability.. Target audience is the government and the citizens of India. The raw data is processed and a Graphical representation of the Output is generated. The graphical data can be used by the government to analyze the situation and take steps to improve the conditions of less performing states. The government can also use this application to get feedback from the consumer of the facilities. Very interactive and the output is presented precisely.
Does it really matter? Is an effective way to analyze the details of water connection to households. Path breaking tool for the government as a user. Government can use the graphical output to address the main challenge of 12th five year plan i.e to increase the percentage of households with water connection. Feedback(From country at large) is handled effectively.
User Flow Diagram.. User -> View statistics->select any particular state to see details->End Mobile App for Feedback Start the app->select take survey->fill in the questions- >submit the feedback->close the app
Relevance to 12th five year plan. According to 2011 census, only 70.6% of urban population has a water connection. Integrated view of water supply. Reduction in unaccounted water supply. 100 percent metering of water supply is not far from reality.
Conclusion.. Efficient analysis tool. One stop Solution: Can be extended to use any other dataset with some minor changes.
