abstract={In Dakar, a considerable deficit is observed in the distribution of drinking water. The demand for drinking water is increasing day by day and the available resources are insufficient. The objective of this article is first to assess the drinking water consumption needs of the Dakar region by performing a statistical analysis of the data. Statistical analysis of the data made it possible to assess the state of coverage of drinking water consumption needs. In addition, this statistical analysis will make it possible to make a comparison between the evolution of drinking water consumption needs and the current available resources. The results obtained show that after interpolations of the data by different polynomials (interpolation of degree 1, interpolation of degree 5, and interpolation of degree 10), the best interpolation in order to have an optimal projection of the evolution of drinking water consumption as a function of the population is the interpolation polynomial of degree 10. This equation called the Dakar equation which gives the consumption as a function of the population is as follows: **Cons = 8,959.10**^{2}**Pop**^{2}** ¨C 5,2592.10**^{8}**Pop + 1,382.10**^{14}**.**},
