This site provides online access to a selection of results from South Africa's Census 2001 down to the “subplace” layer of detail, as released in the Community Profile Database DVD set. Please note the disclaimer at the foot of this page.
You can select one of the provinces below and then navigate further down the hierarchy of places.
The census results are available for six types of area, which are listed here from largest to smallest.
- The nine provinces of South Africa.
- Metropolitan and District Municipalities
- Administrative divisions of the provinces.
- Local Municipalities
- Administrative divisions of the district municipalities.
- Main Places
- Named locations determined by Stats SA, which generally correspond to towns, small cities, regions of large cities, or traditional council areas. Areas that do not fall within any named settlement are incorporated in a main place named for the municipality.
- Sub Places
- Named locations determined by Stats SA, which generally correspond to suburbs, villages, or localities. When a main place contains only one sub place, that sub place is named for the main place with a suffix of “SP”.
