Abstract: If $ G$ is a GGS-group defined over a $ p$-adic tree, where $ p$ is an odd prime, we calculate the order of the congruence quotients $ G_n=G/\mathrm {Stab}_G(n)$ for every $ n$. If $ G$ is defined by the vector $ \mathbf {e}=(e_1,\ldots ,e_{p-1})\in \mathbb{F}_p^{p-1}$, the determination of the order of $ G_n$ is split into three cases, according to whether $ \mathbf {e}$ is non-symmetric, non-constant symmetric, or constant. The formulas that we obtain only depend on $ p$, $ n$, and the rank of the circulant matrix whose first row is $ \mathbf {e}$. As a consequence of these formulas, we also obtain the Hausdorff dimension of the closures of all GGS-groups over the $ p$-adic tree.
