Statistician-General hands over 2016 Community Survey results to government

The Statistician-General of South Africa, Dr Pali Lehohla will release the results of the Community Survey 2016 (CS 2016) which will, among others, reflect on the 40 years of the country’s performance on education, labour markets, service delivery, poverty and access to services. Minister in the Presidency responsible for Planning Monitoring and Evaluation, Honourable Jeff Radebe, will receive the results on behalf of President Jacob Zuma.

Dr Lehohla will also talk on the demographic dividend and present the challenges emanating from the results for the NDP and the democracy in the immediate and medium term.

The CS 2016 is a large-scale household survey which provides statistical facts at municipal level and data on the community and its demographics. This follows weeks of data collection within South African communities by Stats SA fieldworkers that began in March this year.
