This article presents two original datasets on Malian Migrants’ Home TownAssociations (HTAs) located in France and in the rest of the world. The first is a census of the HTAs declared in the French Journal Officiel that provides detailed information on their area of intervention in Mali. The second is a representative survey implemented in Mali in 2011 that collected exhaustive information on abroad-based HTAs intervening in each commune and village of the sample. These two complementary datasets confirm that Malians coming from the region of Kayes are strongly prone to gather in HTAs, notably in France. They also show that this propensity to create HTAs is not exclusive to these migrants. A lot of HTAs were created by Malians coming from the regions of Koulikoro and Mopti, in France as well as in other destination countries.
