Very happy to the see Measuring African Development: Past and Present in print. You can read an open access of the introduction to the book here. The volume takes you through the very first household budget surveys and national account estimates during colonial rule up through contemporary efforts of improving data with mobile phones, tadalafil GPS and handheld devices.
