Estimating the First Demographic Dividend in Senegal: The National Transfers Account Approach (Eng)

This research article discusses a cross-sectional study estimating the first demographic dividend in Senegal. The researchers implemented the national transfers account (NTA) system, basing their calculations on two surveys conducted in Senegal: the "Enquête de Suivi de la Pauvreté au Senegal" (ESPS-2005) and the "Enquête 1-2-3". The results indicate that Senegal is enjoying its first demographic dividend. The authors recommend that the Government of Senegal take advantage of this change in population structure by implementing structural reform that will improve workers' productivity and create more job opportunities.
