Abstract:Under the auspices of the International Children Centre the author carried out two surveys. One, conducted during 1977 and covering a population of 100 young men aged between 19 and 26 living in Dakar, dealt with living conditions, problems connected with education and employment, attitudes to sexual education, to women, to parents and to authorities. The other survey was carried out in 1978/79 and dealt with the number of accidents befalling children and adolescents in the Dakar suburbs, more particularly in Pikine, as well as their economic and social consequences.
