Data

Zambian 2006 to 2010 District, Constituency, and Ward Shapefiles

District, constituency, and ward boundary shapefiles. See included “README.txt” for details on data creation and limitations.

Other Zambian GIS Data

Stanford Earthworks has a fair amount of Zambian GIS data. Much of this data was collected in the course of my research, but unlike the file linked above I did not actually create the data by hand, just collected it from third parties and submitted to the Stanford repository. Earthwork holdings include 1991-2005 ward files.
