• "Sub-Saharan Africa is, geographically, the area of the continent of Africa that lies south of the Sahara."
  • Sub-Saharan Africa refers to the portion of Africa that is (mostly) South of the Sahara. North Africa refers to the portion of Africa that is (mostly) North of the Sahara. SO: a resident of sub-Saharan Africa is NOT a resident of North African and is NOT a resident of the Middle East. Sub-Saharan Africa on the map: {{ }} The "intermediate zone" is (over-simplified explanation) the Sahara Desert. You can see that sub-Saharan does not only refer to the "tropical" or "equatorial" zone, but also to all of Africa that is farther south than that.
  • LOL - Doesn't it make you feel crunchy when two respondents gave URLs that you could have easily gotten on your own? Ah...what are kids doing in school these days...? 😆
  • No, it does not. It means your ethnicity is from the regions below and beyond the Sahara desert. The Sahara and above are north Africa.
