Good morning,


Thank you very very much for this information!


I am glad I am a part of the list.

Subject: [OSGeo Africa] Census data - some resolution



I wrote to this list a couple of weeks ago about getting Census data out
of Stats SA.

Since I have finally gotten some joy, from them, I thought I'd share my
good fortune with this list.

A guy named Mathews Phiri from Stats SA sent me the following:

Please note that the census information is available, at ward level,  on
StatsOnline (www.statssa.gov.za <http://www.statssa.gov.za> ). Click on
the Community Profile button. On the list of data bases select the
"Community Profile" again. You will then see a display of the community
profiles; select Census 2011. You may then select a theme that will show
the variables and their associated classifications. Any table produced
can be downloaded (saved as) on your local drive.  The direct link, to
the community profiles, is
<http://interactive.statssa.gov.za/superweb/login.do>  The community
profiles at sub-place level will be available end of March 2013. 


The Community profiles are also available as a product on DVD at a cost
of R300.

I have managed to use their system to select the data I need and
download it. It's not quite at the level of spatial detail that I was
hoping for, but it's better than what I had before.

Happy downloading.
