Project Home Page



About This Project

The purpose of this project is to index limited information from the 1982–1984 Ghana census. Information will be indexed only from Form H of the census, including information about the town or village names, enumeration area number, town or village code, and the census year. Any image that does not include at least one Form H should be marked as a No Extractable Data Image.
