A study was conducted in 1996/97 to evaluate public water supply demand and resource management problems in Addis Ababa. A stratified sampling design has been adopted to classify the population into those “ who have not” and “haves” private water supply connection. Though, 97.5 per cent of the city dwellers use piped water, it is only 26.8 per cent who “have” private water connection. A sample size of 240 households have been decided to be taken from selected 10 Kebeles. Out of these, 60 per cent (144 households) were taken from those “who have not” and 40 per cent (96 households) from the “haves” water supply connection. The study has also been substantiated by secondary data.
