Ghana’s total population stands at 30.8 million, the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) has announced.

This is after the successful 2021 Population and Housing Census.

What this means is that the country has seen a 6.1 million increase in population from that of 2010, which was at 24.7 million.

Delivering the 2021 Population and Housing Preliminary Report on the Census, the Chief Census Officer, who is also the Government Statistician, Prof. Samuel Kobina Annim, said these statistics have shown an increase in the country’s population by five-folds and indicated that the final figure to be release next month would not see a huge variation in number.

Females (50.7%) outnumber males (49.3%) by 0.4 million.
