Population and towns in Senegal: demo-geographic growth



Population and towns in Senegal: demo-geographic growth



Africa Development. Afrique et Developpement 15(2): 33-43



Using data from the 1976 and 1988 censuses, the author notes that the population of Senegal has grown by 37.6 percent over the period and that this growth is concentrated in urban areas. One feature of this trend has been the growing primacy of the capital Dakar and a decline in the relative importance of smaller towns. The need to discourage rural-urban migration by promoting socioeconomic development in rural areas is stressed. (SUMMARY IN ENG)
