POPULATION

The high district population growth rate of 2.4% relative to the regional rate of 2.1% was as a result of both natural increase and the influx of migrants into the district to seek greener pastures in flourishing sectors such as mining and agriculture. Though the growth rate from 2000 to 2010 was 3.6, the actual population figures (113,721) for 2010 has reduced as compared to the 2000 population figure (179,209) due to the creation of Denkyembour District from Kwaebibirem District.
