Mbalo Brief – May 2022

Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) would like to appeal to Western Cape residents to take part in the completion of the Census 2022 questionnaire after an extension period. This appeal comes after the province has been lagging behind the rest of the country in terms of completeness of the data collection. Nationally, 88% of households have been counted while Western Cape is at the 60% mark. Almost 1,1 million households in the province have completed the census questionnaire since data collection began in February 2022. Stats SA data fieldworkers will be visiting communities with low response rates across the province.
