Urbanization in Ghana and Kenya

Director: Michael J. White
Research Theme: Population Structures in the Urban Environment
Location: Republic of Ghana, Republic of Kenya

In this new project, White will use geocoded DHS microdata to examine neighborhood-level disparities in health and socio-economic conditions and their relationship to urbanization in Ghana and Kenya. This work will provide insight into the relative importance of better provision of public health infrastructure in urban areas versus greater variation in access to resources due to income variation or to exclusionary policies in urban areas.
