As it is in anticipation of the results of the just ended 2021 Population and Housing Census, the Ghana Statistical Service has today, Wednesday 22nd September 2021, released the outcome of the its exercise. Far from what was anticipated or expected, the facts presented by the Statistical Service fell below the standards and projections put out by the GSS and other international bodies.
The total population of Ghana turned out to be 30.8 million, quite less than expected of 31+ projections. From the data presented, the country's population is growing, but at a reducing rate considering those conducted in the previous years.
Also unlike the normally purported, the number of females to males in percentage is 50.7% to 49.3%.
However, as expected of the two regions, the Greater Accra, and the Ashanti regions stand out of the rest of the 16 regions, together sweeping about 40% of the total population of Ghana.
But the Ashanti region has now been overtaken by the Greater Accra region as the most populous region of the country since independence.
This, and many more information about the 2021 PHC has been presented below in screenshots for easy access for our followers. Please like, share and follow for more information.
