Government services 1 – Inadequate access to services

Household infrastructure services like water or sanitation, and public services such as parks or roads, lie at the interface between government and society. This vignette, the first part of a double vignette, considers the government delivery side of the equation. It examines lingering gaps in access to key services across Gauteng's municipalities, asking what proportion of respondents in GCRO's Quality of Life IV (2015/16) survey (i) used bucket toilets for sanitation, (ii) collected water more than 200m away, and (iii) had no stormwater drains.
