Media Invite: CS 2016 Provincial Launch


The Western Cape Provincial launch of Community Survey 2016 will take place on Friday, 08 July 2016 @ 10am at the Provincial Legislature (4 Dorp Street, 7th Floor, Conference facility, Cape Town CBD).

The event will be hosted by Statistics SA in conjunction with the Western Cape Provincial Government-Department of the Premier.

Local municipalities will have the ability to plan based on data that speaks to the moment, rather than data that is seen to be outdated. The speed with which the data will be delivered can contribute to deepening our democracy.  Municipalities will deliver against constituencies that can hold them to account because of the almost instantaneous availability of these new data holdings.

Statistics should be embraced as a fundamental part of our democracy, a conduit of trust amongst citizens, amongst nations.  Statistics can help to improve the quality of democratic debate, by providing reliable indicators, vital for decision-making.

For more information on the survey please contact the call centre on 0800 110 248

Members of the media and key stakeholders are invited to the official launch.

The Statistician General, the CS Project Director and workstream managers will brief the Premier on Community Survey 2016.

For all media enquiries, please contact Vanessa on 021 481 5528 or 082 805 6277
