This page provides information to supplement a major research project on African population history, underway at the World History Center. “African Population, 1650-1950: The Eras of Enslavement and Colonial Rule” is in preparation by Patrick Manning and Scott Nickleach. This page, created in July 2015, is to appear in two stages:

Stage 2: Interactive Simulation of African Population Change (expected to be available in 2016).
