This short, descriptive paper provides an overview of the main findings of the migration and remittances data contained in the nationally-representative, 2005/06 Ghana GLSS 5 Survey (sub-sample). It finds that households receiving internal remittances (from Ghana) and international remittances (from African and other countries) tend to be different – in terms of human capital, etc. – than households with no remittances. It also finds that while only 53 percent of all migrants in Ghana remit, many migrants remit to households other than their nuclear households; that is, they remit to relatives and friends. It also finds that migrants prefer to remit through informal, private channels: 99 percent of internal migrants remit though informal channels (friends, relatives) and 57 percent of international migrants remit through informal channels.
