Particulars:
Source "SG" means: "Statistical year book / Central Bureau of Statistics, Republic of Ghana", 1963.
The basic input in this file is from that publication: towns with over 5,000 inhabitants at the census of 1960.
There are considerable differences found in several sources - even for the same year - whether these figures are for the places themselves, or for the urban agglomeration.
