Africapolis data

Africapolis has been designed to provide a much needed standardised and geospatial database on urbanisation dynamics in Africa, with the aim of making urban data in Africa comparable across countries and across time. This version of Africapolis is the first time that the data for the 54 countries currently covered are available for the same base year — 2015. In addition, Africapolis closes one major data gap by integrating 7,496 small towns and intermediary cities between 10,000 and 300,000 inhabitants. Africapolis data is based on a large inventory of housing and population censuses, electoral registers and other official population sources, in some cases dating back to the beginning of the 20th century.
