The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) is expected to announce the country’s official population later today, Monday, August 2, 2021, at a press conference in Accra.
This follows the end of the 2021 Population and Housing Census on Saturday, July 31.
The exercise began at midnight on Sunday, June 27 but had to be extended on two occasions because of the inability of census officials to complete data collation.
It was extended by one additional week after it officially ended on Sunday, July 11.
Ghana’s population is estimated to be 31.76 million as of July 31, 2021, based on the United Nations latest data.
