Abstract : A toilet is a life-saver and a dignity-protector not just a toilet Unfortunately, WHO & UNICEF (2015) imply that the opposite is true for approximately 61% of rural and 10% of urban Indians.

Given that 70% of the total population in India lives in rural areas, it leaves a lot to be desired, especially from a public health perspective. Using annual time series data on the number of people who practice open defecation in India from 2000 – 2017, the study predicts the annual number of people who will still be practicing open defecation over the period 2018 – 2022. The study applies the Box-Jenkins ARIMA approach
