Cadastral Land Parcel Codes used by the Surveyor General for their 21-digit key for land parcels. This dataset provides a useful lookup between Major and Minor codes, and Municipalities and Districts. Sub-places within Minor code regions are also provided.
There is no guarantee that this dataset is exhaustive since it was derived from another datasets, but is nonetheless quite extensive.
Frequency of surnames in South Africa based on the names of directors in the company register. This distribution might not necessarily match that of South Africa as a whole but represents over 4m surnames and so remains useful.
Census data is provided within small area boundaries. Crime statistics are available within police precincts. There is no hierarchical relationship between the two. This means that you can't answer questions such as: how many crimes per capita in a particular precinct / ward. This data estimates the proportion of a small area that lies within a particular precinct.
If a small area is not wholly contained within the precinct, a weight is created proportional to the amount of overlap with the precinct. This estimate assumes a linear distribution of people across the entire small area. This assumption may not be correct in certain small areas so use the data with caution.
The value of the small area column refers to the StatsSA SAL number. The value in the precinct column refers to the data as per the crime statistics.
The SAL boundaries used are the 2011 boundaries. The precinct boundaries were obtained in 2016. It is not clear how often these boundaries change and whether SAPS maintains versioning information.
