Abstract

The South African National Census of 2011, published on 30 October 2012, is a comprehensive census performed by Statistics South Africa, the latest in a series conducted once every ten years. At the request of the Human Resource Development Council of South Africa (HRDCSA), chaired by deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe, the HSRC undertook an initial analysis of the implications of the Census 2011 for the education and skills development agenda for the country.
