Ram says power sharing only way to reverse high migration
-estimates over 128,000 persons left between 2002 and 2012
Estimating that the findings of the latest census indicate that roughly 128,000 persons have left the country in the decade between 2002 and 2012, analyst Christopher Ram believes that migration that continues to drain the country’s population can only be reversed by power sharing.
According to figures released by the Bureau of Statistics last Monday, the 2012 census determined that Guyana’s population stood at 747,884 persons, down from 751,223 persons in 2002. The resulting difference is 3,339 and Chief Statistician Lennox Benjamin described the drop as marginal.
