    I'd have to agree. If it wasn't for the pic on the right it would be hard to tell which way its going.

    I haven't been paying enough attention to know whether this has been posted but it really surprised me.

    ...there are still houses without indoor plumbing in the civilized world?
    ...how? Why?

    Too remote for a sewer line, and in an environment where sewage dumped into the ground hits the groundwater too quickly. Mountain cabins and fishcamps in the bayou mostly I would guess.

    A few of them might be shanty houses poor people live in.

    Only if they aren't in any municipality. You can't run a chemical toilet without a permit. Without some alternative, no indoor plumbing gets the house condemned under public health concerns and the poor people become homeless people. Even outside of municipalities county inspectors will shut that down, generally speaking.

    Indian reservations. Remote wilderness. The US is big. Compare that map with a population density map and you'll see a lot of correlation with very few people living in a given area.

    All that makes sense.
    Was interested to see how the distribution in Germany is (because most of the things don't apply widely here), but I can only find that 99% of all households have drinking water supply, but can't find anything else :/.

    even in a populous nation like Germany there has to be remote locations with few buildings and few residents.

    Yeah, sure, but I don't think it'll make a vast statistical impact.
    Houses at alpine pastures would probably be the most common thing.
    But as said: Can't find any data :/.
    (and too lazy to do an indepth search)

    You have stuff outside municipalities? :huh:

    There's also the issue of whether or not what the map makers refer to as occupied housing is the same as what the authorities deem as proper houses.

    Oh wait I'm supposed to be Hygro.
    Uhmm
    Hella good beats, mang

    Yeah, lots of stuff. In theory it is still under county authority, but counties have areas where inspectors don't really ever go. That isn't really 'poor people in shanty houses' territory though.

    Anecdotal; I know a guy who drives into town once a week and takes his water supply home in 55 gallon drums. I didn't use a bathroom either of the two times I went to his house, but I wouldn't be surprised if he saves water by using an outhouse. He is far enough off the beaten track that I would be amazed if a county inspector had ever set foot on the place, but it is definitely 'occupied housing'.

    They're still under county jurisdiction, but yeah. Bunch of land full of nothing doesn't need local government.

    What surprised me was the distribution. New Mexico and Maine and Montana. Not North Dakota? Why?

    Too cold? :dunno: In Maine there are a lot of camps. Even townlets that have little to no road access. And a lot of what are called 'unincorporated townships'. These are too small to have a local government, and the county and state governments typically don't have a lot of interest in them.

    Have to keep in mind that the entire span of the map is from 3 per thousand to 10 per thousand. The difference between the greenest green state and the reddest red state is actually small enough that it doesn't necessarily have a good 'reason' behind it.

    Shouldn't this animation end with the view obstructed by the bottom of a Greek sandal?
