Summary analysis for Gauteng from the National Census 2011

The census results, released on 30 October 2012, are summarized in this GCRO Data Brief. In many respects, what is surprising about the results ... is how unsurprising they are. The recent GCRO Quality of Life survey findings are close to identical to the Census in virtually all areas (we were down on informal dwellings, but not much more).

That in no way detracts from the critical importance for government an the academy of accurate census data, which confirm our massive population size and growth, our challenges over managing future densities in a sustainable manner, and the need to develop sustainable human settlements.
