The study attempts to analyze the spatial variation of environmental condition of Bangladesh on the basis of access to improved source of drinking water and sanitation facility. Data on the percentage of people having accessibility to improved drinking water source and sanitation facility for each district has been collected from Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey Report 2009 of Bangladesh. Using cluster analysis method districts have been classified into six groups in a scatter plot classifying districts on the basis of different level access to improved drinking water source and sanitation facility. The findings of the study can help the government to take pragmatic policy to achieve sustainable access to improved drinking water source and sanitation, particularly for the improvement of lagging districts.
