Population Projection 2021 - 2050

The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) is responsible for collecting, compiling, analyzing, and disseminating statistical information in a user-friendly manner, emphasizing user needs over production-centered approaches. The 2021 Population and Housing Census (PHC), conducted every ten years, provides essential demographic, socioeconomic, and housing data for research, policy, and planning, crucial for tracking national and global development goals. To bridge the gap between censuses, GSS has produced population projections for 2021-2050, offering insights into future demographic trends by sex, locality, age, and region, aiding policymakers, researchers, and the public.

These projections are designed to inform national development, facilitate collaborative planning, and support intersectoral policy design. GSS emphasizes the importance of timely and accurate data to guide development efforts.

Acknowledgements extend to the Government of Ghana, various ministries, local governments, security services, development partners, and numerous organizations and individuals for their support and dedication to the census process. Notable contributions came from UN agencies, international organizations, the private sector, and educational institutions, whose support in technical, logistical, financial, and advocacy aspects was crucial. The general public, media, census officials, and field officers were also recognized for ensuring a successful enumeration. Special thanks were given to subject matter experts and team members involved in validating and reviewing the projections. Download report

You Should Know

A Population Census is the complete enumeration of all persons in a country at a specified time. The enumeration implies the collection, compilation, evaluation, analysis, publication and dissemination of demographic, social and economic statistics relating to the population.

A Housing Census is the complete enumeration of all living quarters (occupied and vacant) in a country at a specified time. This enumeration also implies the collection, compilation, evaluation, analysis, publication, and dissemination of statistical data pertaining to these living quarters and the occupants.

A Population and Housing Census consists of a population census and a housing census as one operation. The two censuses, though separate, constitute one statistical operation and they are not completely independent of each other because of the essential elements of each census which are common to both and are also with well-coordinated activities.

The information on the population and living quarters can be more readily matched, and processing is facilitated, and extensive analysis can be carried out. This also makes it possible to relate to the housing census data, the information on demographic and economic characteristics of each household member that is routinely collected in the population census.

A Population and Housing Census (PHC) has many uses. In the first place, it will give us the total number of persons and housing types and their characteristics in every town or village or a given small area in the country. This information will be of great help to the Central and Local Governments in planning various educational, health, housing and other social services. The information that will be derived from the census will also help the private sector, including businesses to plan their activities, which will be of benefit to the economic development of this country. In addition, international bodies, including Development Partners (DPs) and Non-Governmental Organizations will also utilize the Population and Housing Census data when planning for Ghana.
