Is this the actual amounts - I see all the area size and the place name but
no figures?  Am I missing this or is it not available?

Hi Helene

I am in the process of filing a PAIA request to StatsSA precisely because
information has not been forthcoming through the appropriate channels. The
data available from the website is incomplete. If you have access to a
secret datastore then I would be glad if you shared it with us.

Thanks very much for making this available.

I have downloaded and looked at all the shapefiles. Excuse my
ignorance, but where does one get the actual census data - population
counts for example. These are not in the attributes. Can one get other
databases to join with the spatial layers? If so, where and how?
