This paper provides a preliminary survey of the educational attainment of Ghana’s adult population. It describes patterns and trends and makes some allusions to possible associations between educational attainment and outputs and outcomes. More rigorous investigations into causal relations will be the subject of further research.
Section 2 presents a brief discussion on Ghana’s education system. This is followed by section 3, a profile of the educational attainment of the population aged 15 years and above. Section 4 contains a descriptive analysis of educational attainment and some output and outcome indicators. In particular the section will examine adult literacy, employment, unemployment and health. Section 5 concludes the paper.
