The great counting : the making of census '96( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Thursday 10 October 1996 was the day the first census of the new South African democracy took place. Some 80,000 enumerators, covering an average of 150 households each, were sent out across the country, collecting answers to requests for 40 items of information. It was the most comprehensive census yet attempted and included many people who had never been counted before. This programme takes a look at the entire process, from the demarcation of areas and the selection of enumerators - which was not free of controversy - to the counting itself and some of the problems the officials encountered. It visits various parts of the country, from the Winterveld in North West Province and Johannesburg's northern suburbs, to Kagga Kamma and Paternoster in the Western Cape. The most serious problem arose in Nebo, in Northern Province, where local inhabitants wanted to be incorporated into Mpumalanga before they would allow the census to take place. The documentary includes comments from Pali Lehohla, the Co-ordinator of Census '96, and from Mark Orkin, Director of Central Statistical Services
