Prior to the ULP Mapping exercise Government and other agencies had no precise data on Agbobloshie and only vague estimates were used. Orientation within the slum was also poor because no maps existed for the densely populated area. Making decisions based on demographic conditions was also non-existent. Presently, SISS has been able to complete the mapping exercise and processed the base data; which includes the location of all public and private enterprises, roads, health centers, sanitation facilities, educational institutes and religious bodies in the area. Latest by October 2009, data (that SISS has collected and now processing) will be available on personal demographics, population distribution/density, individual housing and sleeping patterns.
