Abstract:This chapter portrays the demographic dynamics of the coastal region of Kenya by placing emphasis on the three components of population change, notably fertility, mortality and migration. An overview of population distribution, structure and composition is also presented. It is noted that fertility increased between 1962 and 1984 and declined thereafter. Despite a recent slight decline in mortality, the Coast still remains a predominantly high mortality region. The belt-like pattern of population distribution is distinctive and the region remains a prime centre of population influx from up-country provinces. (Source: Author Abstract)
