The proportion of the population connected to public water supplies varies throughout the countries in the European region as well as between different areas of the same country. In most countries in the European Region, 90% of the urban population have a home connection to drinking-water, but less than 75% of the urban population is connected in a few countries. Logistical difficulties and increased cost mean that rural populations are less likely to receive piped water and have house connections.
