Population redistribution in Malawi since 1964

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Efforts to encourage internal migration in Malawi are assessed using factor and regression analyses of census data. The pattern of population concentration shifted during the past three decades at both the national and regional levels. Census data show that efforts to redress the spatial imbalance in regional development have resulted in spontaneous migration. Although this trend has alleviated the problem of regional overpopulation, there is an urgent need to reduce the annual growth rate of 3.3%. -Author
