Country Profile Ghana

Ghana was formed by the British Colony of Gold Coast in 1957 and has been a democracy since 1992. Ghana, officially called the Republic of Ghana, is an independent state. 

The current population of Ghana is 31,250,150, based on projections of the latest United Nations data. 


Out of the 26,652,767 people in Ghana, around 50.9% are male, while 49.1% are female with a population growth rate of 2.2%, the total number of births as of the year (2014) approximately is 586,361. The population growth rate is fairly high in Ghana.


Ghana is currently growing at a rate of 2.15% per year,..The main cause of this growth is Ghana’s high fertility rate of 3.89 births per woman and the country’s efforts to minimize birth mortalities.


Ghana’s population growth is alarming to experts as the country is not equipped to handle the dramatically increased needs for food, water, sanitation, education, and employment "livelihood" that comes with a rapidly growing population.
