Of services to households, the electricity was the one with the largest coverage in the country in 2010, according to the Municipal Social Indicators of the Population Census 2010 released on Wednesday by the IBGE (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics).

According to the survey, 97.8% of homes were covered in 2010, with urban areas (99.1%) and rural (89.7%) are almost equivalent.

With the exception of rural areas in the North, where only 61.5% of households had electricity supplied by distribution companies, other regions showed a coverage above 90%, ranging from 90.5% in the rural Midwest to 99 5% in urban areas of the South


Just as water and sewage services, garbage collection in the country increased in 2010 compared to 2000-from 79% to 87.4%.

The coverage was wider in the Southeast (95%), followed by the South (91.6%) and Midwest (89.7%). North (74.3%) and Northeast (75.0%%), with the lowest coverage (57.7% and 60.6%) had the highest growth in ten years, 16.6 and 14.4 points percent respectively.

In urban areas the service of collecting garbage from households was above 90% throughout the country. In rural areas the service has nearly doubled, from 13.3% of households served in 2000 to 26% on average.

Since the disposal of garbage in a vacant lot, which was adopted in 2000 by 20.8% of residents of rural households fell to 9.1%. Despite the growth, the difficulty and high cost of garbage collection in the field make it an it burns the most widely adopted by residents of these areas. The practice grew by 10 percentage points, from 48.2% in 2000 to 58.1% in 2010.
