We investigated the study of the overall social cohesion of Ghanaians. In this study, we considered the
paramount interest of the involvement of Ghanaians in their communities, their views of other people and
institutions, and their level of interest in both local and national politics. The factor analysis method was
employed for analysis using R software. The incontrovertible evidence from the results showed the factors that
were measured to enhance and promote social cohesion among Ghanaians were community, political,
neighborliness, socio-cultural, confidence and security. Our results perfectectly fit our expectation in terms of
knowledge in our socio-political arena.
