Abstract

Demographic estimates and censuses do not only provide quantified information and an opportunity to engage in statistical criticism, whether in the field of demography or of historiography. They can be subjected to a 'quantitative' analysis. With regard to the population figures ascribed to 'ethnic groups', they can provide insights on the real meaning of ethnic identity on the basis of the social history of a regional unit seen by census officials as constituting a discrete entity. The case of the 'Baule' country and ethnic group presents an additional interest in that this population is, rightly or wrongly, considered as having a significant 'political' weight. Rather than its 'historical demography', its 'demographic history' reveals the weakness of conventional wisdom, which is essentially based upon an analysis in tribal terms, on this domination.
