''Stop The Counting And Fix The Light ''~Citizens React To 2021 Population Census.

When Jesus was ready to be born, citizens began to be counted in the Bible. We can only agree that knowing the number of people living in a country is critical for planning a budget that will cover everyone. Ghana began conducting population censuses in 1891. Following then, a series of censuses were carried out until World War II intervened. In 1948, it was restarted. Ghana has held five post-independence censuses, the most recent of which was in 2010.

Ghana had a population of 6,068,995 people in 1957. Ghana had a total population of 24,658,823 persons in 2010, with women accounting for the majority of the population. The cost of counting persons and dwellings in Ghana was Ghc 50 million in 2010.

The president has appointed Mr Emmanuel Amonoo Cobbinah, as the Director of Coordination & Programme Management Directorate (CPMD) at the Ghana Statistical Service. It has been published that, 2021 population census is going to cost Ghana, Ghc 521 million.
