Amigna is one of the 20 districts of Arsi zone. According to the information obtained from elder persons of the area, the name Amigna was derived from one of the Oromo sub-clans, which is known as Amigna. It was recognized as an administrative district in 1958E.C. Before this period, it was administered under Seru district.
The main Objective of this paper is to prepare the physical and socio-economic database of Amigna district. Data are referring to the five up to 1997E.C. All years are according to Ethiopian calendar.
This paper is compiled from data collected from the concerned district and zonal sector departments, 1994 census result report and other related documents available in our office. Shortage of time, lack of accuracy, lack of adequate and timely data is the main constraints we faced in organizing the document. Even if it has these limitations, it is very useful to reflect the physical and socio-economic condition of the district.
The paper has three parts. The first part deals with physical features like location, relief, drainage, soil, vegetation and wild life. The second chapter focused on socio-economic aspects such as human population, economic activities and social infrastructures.
