As of the 12th day of enumeration, the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) has received data on 80 percent of the anticipated households allocated for the 2021 Population and Housing Census.
It also stated that as of Sunday, July 11, 181 of the 272 statistical districts were on track to complete data collecting.
These were revealed at a news conference held by the Government Statistician, Professor Samuel Kobina Annim, on Sunday, the last day of the two-week exercise.
He stated that some districts’ completion rates would have to be maintained.
“An initial mop-up session has been set from July 12 to July 18 to complete the job in the outstanding enumeration areas,” he said.
On the evening of Sunday, June 27, the workout began.
So far, more than 80% of data has been collected in 12 of the 16 areas.
However, with 55 percent of the work completed, the Greater Accra Region will continue the process in ten districts.
Ga West, Ga North, Ayawaso West, Adentan, Ga East, and Ledzokuku are the districts in question.
La-NKwantanang Madina, Kpone Katamanso, Shai Osudoku, and Tema West are the others.
Field closing procedures have already commenced in supervision regions where work has been finished, according to Prof Anim.
He urged individuals who are apprehensive to take part in the census to work with the enumerators.
