Community Survey 2016

The Community Survey takes place every 5 years after Census is conducted. The goal of the Community Survey is to update indicators on household and population statistics at the municipal level to support the planning, policy evaluation and development programs of local government.

Due to the cost implication involved it was decided by Statistics South Africa to collect information based on a representative sample size of the Census 2011 population. The Census 2011 enumeration areas were used as a reference point to determine the eligible enumeration areas for the 2016 community survey and the sample size of the survey was set at 8 per cent of dwelling units for the respective enumeration areas. It was furthermore decided by Statistics South Africa to interview a maximum of 66 dwelling units per enumeration area and to exclude suitable enumeration areas when there are less than 5 dwelling units to interview. This ensured for an average enumeration area sample size of fourteen dwelling units nationally.

The target population of the community survey refers to households that reside in dwellings and therefore excludes information on people residing in frail care centers; old age homes; child care institutions; orphanages; boarding school hostels, convents, monastery, camp, ship in the harbor, prison, correctional institutions & shelters for the homeless.
