  • Description:

    Household electrification rate is defined as the percentage of households with access to electricity and is measured using household surveys (e.g. Demographic and Health Surveys, Living Standard Measurement Surveys). Household surveys provide better measurement than the data provided by national power utilities. In addition, utilities employ different definitions of electrification making it difficult for accurate cross-country comparison.
