Author(s): Ahmed Mohammed and Abebaw Eshte

Primary Language: English

Date: 7/31/2014


This policy brief highlights the USAID-funded Health Policy Project's application of the RAPID model to forecast integrated data and evidence on population and socioeconomic projections for the Amhara region. The analysis can support experts and policymakers to engage in data-driven decision making, planning, budgeting, and monitoring and evaluation of regional population issues linked with related factors such as the economy, education, health, agriculture, and urbanization. The projections were made according to the Central Statistical Agency 2012 Intercensal Population Survey’s low and high variants for 2007 to 2037.
