Background The Government of Ghana has operated the decentralized system of development since 1988 with the District Assembly, as the planning authority.  An understanding of the population, its characteristics and dynamics is important for realistic development planning. The overall level of development and demographic structure of the country conceals differences between and within regions, Districts, urban and rural localities. As such, there are bound to be differences in the population and development needs and priorities between and within regions, Districts, urban and rural localities.

In order to accommodate District specific needs and priorities within the overall development aspirations, policies and priorities of the country. The District Assembly is expected to initiate and coordinate the processes of planning, programming, budgeting and implementation of District plans, programmes and projects. The District Assemblies and the various organs are expected to carry out medium and long term planning including integration of population policies and issues, as they pertain to the needs of particular Districts and communities.

This chapter gives brief information on the physical features, political and administrative structure, cultural and social structure and the economy of the Sene West District Assembly. Sene West District is one of the twenty-seven (27) Districts of the Brong-Ahafo Region. This report provides key results of the analysis of the data from 2010 Population and Housing Census (PHC) for the Sene West District. It is hoped that the report will be useful for development planning for the general public and the District Assembly as important information for socioeconomic development of the people in the District.
