STATES WITH THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF THEIR HOUSING UNITS WITHOUT
COMPLETE INDOOR PLUMBING
An overwhelming majority of housing units (including houses, trailers,
apartments, etc.) in the United States have complete indoor
plumbing--98.8 percent, according to the 2000 U.S. Census (or 1.2
percent without complete plumbing). Some states have far more than
1.2 percent of households without complete plumbing--generally either
"rugged" northern mountainous states with a lot of cabins (some of
which are only part-time residences) or low-income states that are
primarily rural. In the case of Alaska, which ranks #1, extended below-freezing
weather not only makes plumbing more of a challenge, but even maintaining
a waterline to a house (or cabin) can be difficult where there is thick
Delaware, in contrast, has the fewest houses lacking complete plumbing
