Abstract:

This booklet summarizes the major findings on 20 key indiators from the 2008 Ghana Demographic and Health Survey (GDHS). These indicators refer to the household population, to women and men of reproductive age, to youth, age 15-24, and to children, age 6-11 and under 5. Wherever possible, data have been grouped by various background characteristics, and patterns that emerge have been discussed in detail. Trends over time have been presented to assess progress toward reaching the goals in Ghana.
