dc.description.abstractIn most African companies the private sector has fewer computers than have the public and semi-public sectors. However certain large private companies operating in Africa use computers, and there is a correlation between the number of computers in a country and the level of its economic development. The first computers in Africa were installed by Governments or by the semi-public sector, and they were intended to make up for a shortage of trained personnel. The need for them was especially great since administrative procedure was modeled after that:followed by the colonial'Powers and was too unwieldly for the staff available. For the time being, most electronic data processing is confined to the area of management, and Governments are still the leading users. Within Governments, a large percentage of users are statisticians who use computers mainly to process data relating to foreign trade and customs transactions and also in connection with economic and demographic statistics and even in national accounts.en
