Islam and Human Development in Sub-Saharan Africa: Looking at Population Indicators
HAYASHI Reiko (Special Lecturer, Univ. of Tokyo Center for Sustainable Urban Regeneration / Former Technical Advisor to the Senegal Ministry of Health)

One third of Africa’s sub-Saharan population is Muslim, around 250 million people. As the population is expected to continue growing rapidly, this Islamic community is by no means peripheral, but occupies an important position. This presentation will use data from recently completed population and health surveys (DHS, MICS) in sub-Saharan Africa to explore the relationship between population indicators, such as birth and mortality rates, and religion and other socio-cultural factors.
