2 - Trend analysis was used to estimate the percenatage of slum.
3 - DHS 2006/7
4 - In 1990 and 2001 slum estimates were based only on two shelter components (Water & sanitation) from WHO UNICEF JMP Water and Sanitation 1990 and 2000 report. Four shelter components (water, sanitation, sufficient living and durable housing) were used to estimate 2005 Slum.

In 2005, only a proportion of households using pit latrines were considered slum households, whereas in 1990 and 2001 all households using pit latrines were counted as slum households.
22 - Number of sleeping rooms was not collected in some DHS surveys. Countries with other data sets with information on number of sleeping rooms, Simulation method was used to estimate the proportion of households with sufficient leaving areas. .
