Atwima Kwanwoma DCE urged Ghanaians to avail themselves to census

Hon Nana Okyere Tawiah Antwi, the Atwima Kwanwoma District Chief Executive, has advised Ghanaians to endeavour to make themselves available for counting in this year’s population census.

Speaking to media in an interview, he said it was the civic responsibility of the people to participate in the upcoming population and housing census.

He said the census, which would be organised by the Ghana Statistical Service, would enable the country to know its exact population for proper and effective planning.

“The census is also key to promoting food security and reducing poverty and hunger, among other issues,” he said adding that it was acknowledged globally as the most effective approach to policy and decision making.

The census will indicate the total number of people and housing types and their characteristics in every town or village in the country.

It will help both the central and the local government, including the private sector, to plan their programmes.

He charged religious and traditional leaders  to educate their followers on the importance of the upcoming National Housing and Population Census and the need for them to be receptive to field officers who will be engaged in the exercise in June this year.
This is because enumerators are sometimes denied access to homes to collect data for the exercise.
