Sorry - separate entities. Boundary files only spatial and spatial
related attributes.
The 'census data' is available via 'SuperCross' which you have to link
using the codes.

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

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?
