The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has released The State of the World's Children 2007 with statistics from nearly 200 countries around the world on the percentage of households with access to iodized salt. While progress over the past 15 years has been dramatic, its pace has slowed. A decade ago, only 54% of the world's households had access to iodized salt; today it stands at 70%. But it has increased from 66% in 2000 and only from 68% from 2006 to 2007. Country tables are included .
