  • Assessing the Performance of ELL and EBP Models in Estimating District
           Level Poverty Indices in The Presence of Outliers in the Northern Region
           of Ghana.

      Authors: Ishaque Mahama, Nicholas N. N. Nsowah-Nuamah, Abukari Alhassan
      Pages: 1 - 24
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to assess the performance of the Elbers, Lanjouw and Lanjouw (ELL) and the Empirical Best Predictor (EBP) Small Area Estimation (SAE) models in estimating the Foster-Greer-Thobecke (FGT) poverty indices for the Northern Region of Ghana in the presence of outliers. The sixth round of the Ghana Living Standard Survey (GLSS) data and the  Population and Housing Census ( PHC) data were used for the study. The performances of these SAE models under normality and non-normality assumptions were evaluated by computing and comparing their Absolute Relative Biases and Relative Root Mean Squared Errors values under both conditions by conducting a model-based simulation study in the absence and presence of outlier contaminated data. Results from the study showed that no matter the level of contamination, the EBP model is a better performer and more stable than the ELL model in estimating all the FGT poverty indicators for the Region. Therefore, it was recommended that in future poverty estimating exercises, the EBP model be used to estimate the FGT poverty indicators for the Northern Region of Ghana.

  • Dominated Myths Are Almost Broken: Evaluating Assembly Members’ Lived
           Experiences in Ghanaian Local Politics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Janet Serwah Boateng
      Pages: 25 - 48
      Abstract: Ghanaian cultural norms, verbal and non-verbal expressions, gender stereotypes, and male dominance are real propaganda that discourages women from engaging in local politics. This paper draws from the dominant ideology, development approach and gender power relations to reveal efforts to motivate aspiring women politicians to engage local government administration. In-depth interviews and focus group discussions were used in collating the data. The study findings showed that male and female assembly members resisted derogatory pronouncements. The actions were to encourage more women to contest district assembly elections and win. The male assembly members suggested ways to encourage women in their electoral areas to participate in local politics influenced the near deconstruction of the myths. These myths included male dominance surrounding discriminatory predispositions against aspiring women politicians in Ghana.

  • The Role of Rural Banks in Poverty Reduction among Women: Evidence from
           Sonzele Rural Bank, Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Paul Bata Domanban, Akanganngang Joseph Asitik, Reginald Addy-Morton
      Pages: 49 - 70
      Abstract: Two-thirds of the world’s poorest and vulnerable, mostly women, live in rural areas, engaging in subsistence agriculture. Hence, in Ghana, rural banking was introduced to provide microcredit services to the marginalised neglected by commercial banks. One of such banks is the Sonzele Rural Bank in Jirapa was set up to offer credit services to improve the living condition, yet poverty in Jirapa is still high. This study, therefore, sought to investigate the role of rural banks in poverty reduction drawing evidence from the Sonzele Rural Bank in
      Jirapa. Using a cross-sectional design, the study employed structured interviews to collect data. The cluster sampling technique was used to select thirteen women’s groups in Jirapa, and purposive sampling enabled the selection of four project staff. Paired-samples t-test and Kendall’s coefficient of concordance were employed in the analysis. The study revealed that credit with education was given to women in groups which enabled them to set up various enterprises and experienced an increase in income and expenditure on education and health thus, reducing poverty in the area. Beneficiaries noted that the issues of high-interest charges, short repayment schedules and absence of insurance policy need attention to make credit a poverty reduction tool.

  • Student housing investment strategies through location and building
           services. A study of privately-owned student housing around university
           campuses in Northern Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Samson Akanvose Aziabah, Appau Williams Miller, Elvis Attakora-Amaniampong
      Pages: 71 - 95
      Abstract: The study assesses the investment strategies private investors employ in student housing to remain viable by attracting students to the hostels with minimum impact of location on such decisions of students. The study used a mixed-methods approach involving surveys and interviews. The Hedonic Price Model through Multiple regression and ANOVA were used to analyse quantitative data, while qualitative data were analysed using themes. The study found a gradual rise in student housing rent with increasing distance from university campuses. As a strategy, investors in student housing distant from university campuses offer special building services over and above those hostels near campuses. It allows distant hostels to stay competitive in the student housing market. In addition, the paper highlights student's' preferences such as internet services, private lavatories and security, which investors should consider in the provision of student housing to enhance occupancy rate and eventually increase returns. The study also reiterates the need for specificity in using the Hedonic Price Model in housing research.

  • Exploring the Problems the Gari Processing Industry Encounter in the West
           Gonja Municipality, Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Moses Naiim Fuseini, Mohammed Sulemana
      Pages: 96 - 118
      Abstract: The gari enterprise is a catalyst for economic progress and a route out of poverty as it is a major staple food for many Ghanaians. Despite the problems confronting gari enterprises, it has attracted less attention. As such, this study aims to explore the problems facing gari enterprises in the West Gonja Municipality of Ghana. The case study design was adopted for the study. The sample size comprised 30 participants who were engaged in gari enterprises. Interview and observation guides were used to collect data, whereas thematic analysis and pairwise ranking were used to analyse the data. The results showed that gari enterprises faced internal problems covering, technology adoption, and marketing problems, while external problems encountered included funding and poor infrastructure. However, production problems emerged as the most predominant. In general, both internal and external problems undoubtedly influenced the operation of the gari enterprise. To overcome these problems, gari enterprises should acquire and use modern equipment for production, develop their human capital, and secure affordable loans.

  • Unpaid Care Work and its Effect on Gender Equality in Northern Ghana:
           Evidence from the Jirapa Municipality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: George Dery Nanko, Frank K. Teng-Zeng
      Pages: 119 - 147
      Abstract: Globally, women are said to be disadvantaged in the world of paid and/or unpaid work. The study aims at examining the implications of unpaid care responsibilities on gender inequality in the Jirapa Municipality of the Upper West Region, Ghana. The mixed method approach was used for data collection and analyses. In-depth interviews using a questionnaire and an interview guide were used to collect qualitative and quantitative data. The questionnaires were analyzed descriptively using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 22 while the interviews were analyzed using the thematic analysis. Findings from the study revealed that inequality caused by unpaid care work is noticeable in the areas of governance, education and paid employment. For instance, whereas the informal sector employs more women, the formal sector employment is largely dominated by men who tend to have sustained jobs. In all these situations women in rural areas tend to be the most affected by gender inequalities. Interconnected variables of vulnerability and suppression including residential status (rural or urban settings) intersect with gender to make rural women worse off in terms of gender inequality. The study recommends cash remittances to unemployed ‘ housewives’ in rural areas and massive infrastructural development of rural communities to guarantee gender responsive public service to women.
