The prime question of this paper is, how did the size of the Rehoboth Baster population (Namibia) change since its departure from South Africa in 1868 up to the present. Three groups of sources are evaluated. From the resulting data a long-term growth rate of 3.3% is inferred, and the implications of this rate for the economy are discussed which was at first based on animal husbandry.
