Zanzibar’s Best Data

Updated July 2016: Added Household Budget Survey 2014/15 Preliminary Results, Integrated Labour Force Survey 2014, Consumer Price Index and Tourism Statistics.

Given recent journalistic interest in Zanzibar, and my work within the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar’s Planning Commission for two years up to October, I want to share some key data sources.

I’ve been careful to only include documents that are already online. The documents can be confusing, incomplete and/or out of date, but to my knowledge, these are the best publicly available sources of data on Zanzibar and it took me two years to find all of these.

Please ask me on Twitter (@jamiepett) if you have questions about this data or if you think anything is missing.
