Market Snapshots
The 2015 Census Provisional Results, tabulated by Statistics Sierra Leone, states that between 2004 to 2015, the Sierra Leone population grew by 42% (from 4,976,871 in 2004 to 7,075,641 in 2015 (Credit: Statistics Sierra Leone). Over twelve years, this reflects a yearly population growth rate of 3.5%. This would infer that Sierra Leone is among the fastest growing populations in the world.  According to Statista, Sierra Leone is not listed as having one of the fastest growing populations in 2014.  Considering Ebola fatalities and high infant mortality rates (among others), the statistics could be flawed, pending revelation of the census methodology used by Statistics Sierra Leone to verify the logic of the data collected. Leones and Sense would like to acknowledge that the Ebola crisis has multiple impact on the country's economy.      Crude oil prices per barrel are at historic lows (appx. $34.00 per barrel) but petrol and diesel prices at the pump in Sierra Leone have not been adjusted to reflect this.
