We pulled the number of public toilets in different cities throughout the UK and the US, using PeePlace. Only cities with 10 or more public toilets were included in the dataset. Then we collected UK and US population data from ONS and Census to calculate the number of public toilets per 100k people.
The data only includes countries with a population of 300,000 and above, US cities with a population of 250,000 or more, UK cities with a population of 100,000 or more.
UK Counties were taken as metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties in England, principal areas in Wales, council areas in Scotland, and counties of Northern Ireland. The City of London was removed from the dataset due to its special status and significantly smaller population.
The data was gathered in August 2021.
