Tanzania's 2012 Census: Tracking Population Growth, Internal Migration and Urbanisation

Hugh Wenban-Smith

The Tanzanian population is now 48 million.  Over 4 million live in Dar es Salaam. The growth has slowed slightly to below 3% per annum – which means that the population is doubling about every 25 years.  If the trends continue the population will reach 100 million around 2040, over half of whom will live in urban areas.  

16 June 2014, Russell Square: College Buildings, Khalili Lecture Theatre, 5:15 PM - 7:00 PM
