The Ghana National Household Registry (GNHR) is a unit under the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection with the mandate to create a single National Household Registry from which all social protection programmes in Ghana will select their beneficiaries.

The exercise is meant as a tool to improve efficiency, effectiveness and expand the coverage and scope of social protection interventions in Ghana.

The core of the project is electronic enumeration of the households. Data collection will be conducted using computer assisted personal interviewing and all will be undertaken by professional data collection firms.

GNHR registration agents will move from house to house with devices which are pre-loaded with data intake questionnaire to collect biographic and socio-economic data on members of each household.
