Ghana is preparing for the 2021 Population and Housing Census (PHC) with data collection scheduled to start from June 28 to July 11, 2021.
The listing of structures began on Sunday, June 13, while the census night begins on Sunday, June 27, 2021. The 2021 PHC will be the first digital PHC in the country.
The 2021 PHC will provide important information to support evidence-based implementation of the national development agenda and support the tracking of achievements of the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2063 of the African Union.
Questions to be asked during enumeration
During enumeration, a census official (enumerator) will visit each household and administer a questionnaire (collect some information) from the head of the household or any other adult in the household.
The enumerator will present their ID card on arrival. The interview to collect information must be conducted in the language that the respondent (household member) can understand.
It is important that everyone takes note of the Census Night and where you spent that night to answer the questions accurately.
All household heads should also make note of all the persons that slept in their household on the Census Night, both usual members of the household and any visitors.
Enumerators will visit all households or institutions and collect detailed information on the persons that slept there on Census Night.
It is important that all household heads are able to answer these questions on behalf of others in their absence. The information to be collected covers the following:
1. Travel history of household members who have migrated abroad
2. Socio-demographic characteristics (age, sex, education, ethnicity, religion etc.)
3. Literacy and education
4. Economic activity (employment status, job description, occupation, industry)
5. Difficulties in performing daily living activities (seeing, hearing, walking etc.)
