The full result of the 2021 Population and Housing Census is anticipated to be released by the Ghana Statistical Service in November 2021. The service is nearing the end of its quality assurance process, which will culminate in a post-enumeration survey.
Professor Samuel Kobina Anim, the Government Statistician, stated this when he officially presented President Akufo-Addo with the preliminary census results at the Jubilee House.
Ghana’s population is estimated to be 30.8 million people, according to preliminary data from the 2021 Population and Housing Census. Since the first post-independence census in 1960, the population has increased about fivefold.
Ghana’s population is increasing, albeit at a slower pace than previous censuses.
Professor Samuel Kobina Anim, the Government Statistician, stated that the Ghana Statistical Service is ready to help policymakers in making maximum use of the census data’s more than 2 million indicators.
“The Statistical Service will conduct a poll on the integrity of public services once the final report is out,” he stated.
“Once we have completed the census, which always symbolizes census surveys your excellency, I must inform you that there will be one significant survey looking at the integrity of public services before the end of the year, and the Ghana Statistical Service looks forward to industrialization.
” The Statistical Service has been guaranteed by Akufo-Addo that the data in the report would be used for future planning”.
Dr. Grace Bediako, Chairperson of the Statistical Service Board, Mrs. Abena Osei Akoto, Head of Recruitment and Training for the recently concluded Census, and Emmanuel George Osei, Head of the Census Secretariat, were among the members of the delegation to the Jubilee House.
