African Statistical Yearbook 2010

image of African Statistical Yearbook 2010

The African Statistical Yearbook aims to break with past practices, whereby each regional/subregional organization published their own statistical data on African countries. It is expected that the joint collection and sharing of data between regional institutions will promote a wider use of country data, reduce costs and significantly improve the quality of the data, leading to better monitoring of development initiatives on the continent. The data in this issue of the Yearbook cover the period from 2001 to 2009, or up until the last year for which data are available. There are two parts to this volume: a set of summary tables followed by a set of country profiles.

Social and Demographic Indicators

The number of pupils per teacher is one of the main factors influencing teaching quality. From 2000 to 2007, a study based on 43 African countries shows that there is a relatively constant increase in the pupil/teacher ratio in primary education. Such a situation leads to the conclusion that the continent is pushing towards higher enrolment rates for children rather than looking to increase teaching staff.
