The information and data within this report has been obtained from the RemitSCOPE Africa web portal. The site collects data for up to 140 variables for 54 countries and uses a mix of primary and secondary data sources for each thematic area.
Publicly available data on migration, remittance flows, remittance pricing and financial inclusion is based on information from sources such as UNDESA, the World Bank’s KNOMAD reports and Remittance Prices Worldwide, FINDEX, IMF, OECD and others.
Many of these sources used estimates and models to develop the data that is provided. Primary research has been used wherever practical and especially in the areas of access, restrictions on operating, licensing and competitive environment, operators, pay-out partners and service providers. The research was undertaken by local experts and was undertaken during Q1 and Q2 2023.
