I'm aware that

ご家族は何人ですか

means how many people are in your family? But the ご how is used? What does mean?

It would be the same as

あなたの家族は何人ですか/家族は何人ですか?

It's similar to the honorific お.

Japanese honorific prefixes お and ご (‘O’ and ‘Go’)

ご is used as a respected word. for example, if you are a questioner for a boss, you should use ご.
