In addition, the study also studied the influence of education and government Regulation on the development of stock Market in Tanzania. The study adopted a descriptive research design. The population of the study was 223 consisting of 176 institutional investors and 47 brokerage firms. The sample size was 114 consisting of 100 institutional investors and 14 brokerage firms. Convenient sampling technique was employed to effectively collect primary data using closed and open-ended questionnaire.

Factors such as increase in interest rate, depreciation of currency, purchasing power or disposable income and increase in the number of sellers affect the prices and demand of the stock securities which eventually affect the development of stock. The study found that socio-cultural factors such as disasters, adverse weather, regime governance and election events among others. The findings on government regulation found that government public awareness programs, government spending, tax laws, subsides and tariffs, government support for local companies and strengthening of banking sector improve stock market development in Dar es Salaam. The study concluded that DSE was affected by the changes in inflation, natural and man-made disasters, terrorism and war. The development of stock was also influenced by the type of political leadership and the extent of advancement of technology.
