for support of the Centre of Actuarial Research's (CARe) population science training program  
A grant to the Centre for Actuarial Research (CARe) at the University of Cape Town would support the continued training of African demographers on estimation techniques. Many sub-Saharan African countries lack reliable and accurate basic demographic data that can be used to develop and implement public policies. Alternate data sources such as the census or survey data often have limitations due to sampling or quality issues. CARe is the only African institution training population scientists to use demographic estimation techniques to overcome these poor data systems in order to inform more effective policies and programs.
