Beyond the general movement of prices in December last year, a simple calculation of the average changes in prices of goods and services over the past 12 months indicated that the Greater Accra region’s 10.3 percent was the highest in all the traditional ten regions measured. 

Greater Accra was followed by the Upper West Region — ranked as the poorest region according to the Ghana Poverty Mapping Report, which came in with an average of 10.1 percent.
The Ashanti region, which is home to the country’s second-largest city, Kumasi, came in at eighth position with average inflation of 7.6 percent, making it among the least expensive regions for consumers.
