Since 1960 Ghana has produced national census reports. However, the unit of analysis has not moved beyond that of the region in many instances, although it is recognized that Metropolitan/Municipal/ District level information is critical for the design and targeting of interventions aimed at improving upon the living conditions of the population.

An analytical census report for the New Juaben Municipality using the 2010 Population and Housing Census (2010 PHC) data will be useful for planning socio-economic developments for the Municipality. This chapter provides brief background information of the New Juaben Municipality for the socio-economic and demographic analysis of the 2010 Population and Housing Census as they relate to the Municipality.

The topics discussed included; physical features, political and administrative structure, social and cultural structure and the economy. The organization of the report, census methodology and definition of concepts are also included in the chapter.
