*Assuming 3% annual population growth between 2012 and 2016.

†Community-derived 2016 population estimates were as follows: Ghana = 3500; Kasenyi = 3225; Chakazimbwe = 2000; Bezi Kisiwani = 2600; Chifule Ukara = 2000; Kijiweni = 2645; Kayenze = 3551; Ruhanga = 2000; Total = 21 521.

‡ Calculated as the 2012 census population estimate with a 3% population growth factor applied for 4 years (to 2016), multiplied by the 2-year recall period, and rounded to the nearest whole number.
