Ghanaian Child Poverty Under the Age of 16
It is essential to understand that the correlation between the percentage of Ghanaians and poverty level among children under the age of 16 does not imply a direct cause-and-effect relationship. It remains uncertain whether the presence of Ghanaians influences an upward or downward trend in the level of poverty level among children under the age of 16 within an area, or if Ghanaians simply ended up residing in those areas with higher or lower levels of poverty level among children under the age of 16 due to other factors.
