  1. aTotal number = total number in the country and is the denominator against which the percentages are calculated
  2. bThe estimated total number of water containers in Myanmar was based on one container per person living in Myanmar. Previous unpublished surveys have suggested that each resident in the country has one or slightly more than one container with the types of container being drums, cement tanks, ceramic jars, flower vases, car tires, tins, and coconut shells
