What is this about?
The IWA Statistics and Economics Specialist Group provides a forum to discuss the financing of water utilities, the water tariff structures, performance indicators, efficiency and economics of water organizations and themes like total cost recovery. A part of this service consists of water surveys and providing statistics on water industry, such as tables and figures on abstraction, consumption, tariffs and data on sewerage and wastewater treatment. The International Statistics for Water Services platform focuses on water consumption of households and small businesses.

Interpreting the graphs correctly:
– The explanatory notes give more background information to interpret the data in the right way.
– All data are on country and city level, NOT on a company level.
– All financial data are converted to US$, the latest known exchange rate of December 2019.
– The exchange rates vary in time. Therefore it is not possible to compare charges in time.
