The Ministry for Employment and Labor Relations is set to announce the number of unemployed population in the country.
The statistics on the number of unemployed population is based on findings from the Ghana Statistical Service.
This will serve as a basis for policy makers and program managers to tackle issues of unemployment in the country.
Reports say the survey which commenced in 2015 is the most detailed to be conducted by the Ghana Statistical Service on Ghana’s employed and unemployed population.
In an interview with Citi Business News, the Project Coordinator and Head of Field Operations of the Ghana Statistical Service, Peter Tekyi Preprah said the survey will serve as a basis for future surveys related to employment issues in the country.
“This one serves as the first one more like the base line usually we do; ask few questions on labour, they are not detailed enough. In the GLSS, which we have done up to six we are currently on the seventh one and in censuses we also have few questions on labour.”
“But this one being a standalone has detailed questions on a broader scope on which researchers and policy makers and users of statistics can benefit from.”
