Luanda Survey Data


Population Projections

These population projections display data from two government censuses in 1983 and 2000 and an estimation of the population of Luanda calculated by Development Workshop in 2008.

The projections take the 2008 estimation of 5.8 million residents as a baseline and then calculate the future population of Luanda using an 8% annual growth rate – which was the average growth rate from 2000 to 2008. The population for each municipality and comuna is calculated as a proportion of the city population relative its percentage of the total population in 2008.

Millennium Development Goals Indicators

This table represents the result of an analysis Development Workshop conducted that ranked 11 settlement typology categories in Luanda against five Millennium Development Goal indicators.

The rankings indicate the locations in the city where different service and infrastructure improvements are needed and the relative challenges of implementing these upgrades. The higher the overall ranking, the greater the intensity of upgrading that is needed in that settlement typology.

To view the maps and read definitions of the indicators, view the MDG maps here.

Municipal Forum Atlases

Development Workshop is working with the Municipal Forums in Luanda to collect social and economic data about the municipalities. The survey data is being compiled into municipal atlases and advocacy posters.

The atlases include information about development issues and profiles the people and programs that are working to improve basic services in Luanda’s municipalities.

Local organizations can also use the advocacy poster to communicate the information in the atlas to residents – hang the poster in a creché, health center, market, or community center.
