IraqSlogger's exclusive Baghdad electricity survey.

The image below presents the results of IraqSlogger's exclusive weekly report on electricity availability to households in nine Baghdad neighborhoods, for the week ending November 3.

In comparison to last week's report, IraqSlogger's sources report that average power supply over the week ending last Saturday dropped by as much as three hours per day in Mansour and al-'Amil, and by two hours per day in Harthiya, Ghazaliya, and Baghdad al-Jadida, with four other districts reporting the same daily supply, on average, as the week before.

Baghdad al-Jadida again marks the low point of the weekly survey, with residents reporting only three hours per day of electricity supply, and the western Baghdad districts of Ghazaliya, Harthiya, Kadhimiya and Mansour topping the list with (only) eight hours per day reported in each.

The disparity between Baghdad's eastern and western halves is again plainly visible in this week's data, with western Baghdad's districts reporting generally more hours of daily supply than the districts east of the Tigris.
