Demographic Simulation - The forced migration of some ten million men, women and children, sent in chains across the Atlantic from the 16th through the 19th century, surely had a great impact on the size and structure of population on the African continent and in the diaspora. But, because of the nearly total absence of pre-20th-century censuses, most estimates of African population were little more than wild speculation.
This web site permits a step forward, to organized speculation, through demographic simulation. This simulation, in summarizing available information on slave trade -- and combining it with what is known of normal human patterns of birth, death, and migration -- has made it possible to offer a coherent picture of African and diaspora population in the era of slave trade. In exploring the simulation, you are invited to vary the demographic conditions and see their implications. First-time users should read the introductory materials (see below) as you set up your runs.
