Country / Regional Activity: Ghana
Date of Event: 02/07/2012
A DDI production workshop was held on July 9-13, 2012, with the Ghana Statistical Service. The workshop took place in Ho, Ghana (regional capital of the Volta Province). Twelve persons attended including the head of the regional office, Ms. Augusta Okantey. This is the third workshop to be held in Ghana and the GSS confirms its willingness to maintain and expand its NADA. Nine surveys were documented in 5-days. The ADP team proposed further action to update and upgrade its NADA and survey catalogue. Over the last 18 months, the GSS has been busy processing the 2010 Census and is now poised to continue its documentation effort. Together with Nigeria, Ghana leads in the documentation effort of English-speaking West Africa.
