Abstract:Little quantitative information is available about the important role played by market trade in West-Africa. A sample survey of the Accra markets, in August and September 1959, was to try to throw some additional light on this sector of economic activity. The main objective of the survey was to establish the number of traders; their distribution by sex, tribe, commodity groups; turnover, starting capital and rate of growth of capital invested in trade. This article is limited to a summary of some of the findings and to a discussion of certain problems raised by the measuring of turnover. Tables.
