Ghana 6th Living Standards Survey
May 5, 2016
This report presents the main results of the sixth round of the Ghana Living Standards Survey (GLSS6), a nationwide household survey designed to generate information on living conditions in the country.
The GLSS6 collected detailed information from households including their demographic characteristics, education, health, employment and time use, migration and tourism, housing conditions, household agriculture, access to financial services and asset ownership.
The survey also collected information on households’ perception of governance, peace and security in the country. Unlike previous rounds, this report includes a Labour Force Survey with additional sections on Child Labour. It also includes additional indicators pertaining to the Northern Savannah Ecological Zone where a major Government initiative, the Savannah Accelerated Development project (SADA) had just been initiated.
