The Analysis of District data has become necessary due to the ever-increasing demand for data at the district level for local government administration and planning. It is also of relevance because most interventions by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other international partners are at the local level and such a report would provide an in-depth knowledge of disaggregated data for each district in the Western Region for informed decision-making.

Physical Features
The Western Region covers an area of 23,921 square kilometres, which is about 10 per cent of Ghana’s total land surface. It is located in the south-western part of Ghana, bordered by Ivory Coast on the West, Central Region on the East, Ashanti and Brong-Ahafo Regions on the North and on the South by 192 km of coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. The southern most part of Ghana, Cape Three Points, near Busua, is in the Ahanta West District of the region.
