Under colonialism, Zambia (as Northern Rhodesia) experienced a copper mining boom in the 1920s, resulting in urbanisation around the northern copperbelt towns, a demographic pattern that continues into the 21st century. Since independence in 1964, Zambia has seen relative political stability. From 1972 to 1991 it was a one-party state, and experienced economic decline linked to its reliance on copper. After 1991, when Zambia saw a transition to multi-party politics, it has experienced a period of economic reform and growth that has stabilised the economy and reinvigorated foreign investment.
