Religion
93.5% of the population is Christian, with only 1.6% Muslim, 0.4% Traditionalist, 0.8% other religion, and a further 3.7% claiming no religion.  Seventh Day Adventists make up a significant portion of the “Other/Not specified Christian” category.  However, the large percentage of this category of Christians is partially due to data collection agents not querying respondents about the specific type of Christianity practiced.

Ethnicity
A vast majority of the population of these communities are Akan (93.6%).  The percentage of Akans is highest in Patriensa and Kyekyebiase (97.3% and 97.2%) and lowest in Nyaboo (79.1%) .  

Ewes make up a small percentage of the total population of the communities (2.2%), but form a more significant percentage in both Nyaboo and Obenimase.  Other ethnic groups, each forming around half percentage of the populations, include: Ga-Dangbe, Dagomba, and Mole-Dagbani.
