  1. Precolonial centralization will be positively correlated with access to federally administered public services. (135)Archibong, Belinda - Explaining divergence in the long-term effects of precolonial centralization..., 2019 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates previous findings that indicate precolonial centralization was beneficial for development in Africa. Using new survey data from public primary schools, the author shows that the failure of leaders of centralized regions to comply with federal regimes was punished with underinvestment in public infrastructure services, hindering development and limiting access to these services in recent populations. The author proposes that the extent to which precolonial centralization was beneficial for development in Africa is mediated by compliance of the local governing bodies with federal regimes.

  2. ". . . members of precolonially centralized ethnic groups are more likely to hold autocratic values." (12)Chlouba, Vladimir - Early Statehood and Support for Autocratic Rule in Africa, 2021 - 2 Variables

    The authors of this article evaluate how the legacies of early statehood (i.e., precolonial centralized ethnic groups) in Africa continue to impact democratic governance. They find a positive relationship between early states and support for autocratic rule, especially in former British colonies that were highly centralized prior to colonization. They suggest that the transmission of political and cultural norms play an important role in the support for autocracies.

  10. Children's vaccination rate against measles will be negatively correlated with maternal ancestral ethnic group exposure to the slave trade.Athias, Laure - Demand for Vaccination in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Vertical Legacy of the Sla..., 2022 - 2 Variables

    The authors of this study integrate recent data with data on ancestral ethnic groups' exposure to the slave trade in order to examine the relationship between this historical exposure and children vaccination status against measles. They find evidence to support their hypothesis that children from mothers whose ancestors belonged to an ethnic group that exported slaves are less likely to be vaccinated against measles, theorizing that this correlation stems from distrust in medical and governmental institutions. Supporting this theory, they also find that groups historically exposed to the slave trade that have higher preference for traditional practices are even less likely to vaccinate their children against measles.
