Ghana quantitative survey data
User Guides and Questionnaires
Each survey is accompanied by a User Guide which summarises the sampling methodology adopted by each of the partners leading the in-country work; sets out key definitions and describes the data files. These are based on sources such as the fieldwork manuals and research reports provided by the partners. We recommend you read the User Guide before downloading the datasets.
While our surveys use near-identical questionnaires we recommend you download and read the questionnaires for each country as there are differences in coded responses to reflect country contexts and also slight differences in ordering of questions.
Data is available in both STATA and SPSS formats for 2013, and in both Excel and STATA formats for 2018. See the User Guide for each survey for more details. For 2013, there are three data sets for each country, a household level file, and individual file and a supplementary file containing disaggregated data on income and or remittances. Data sets can be merged using the Household Identifier and Person Identifier variables, as described in each User Guide.
NOTE: To download data files (.dta and .sav) you must have STATA or SPSS software. To download Excel files (.xls) you must have Microsoft Excel or similar software. Depending on your browser download may begin automatically after clicking (Google Chrome) or you may be presented with options to save (Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox).
