Statistics South Africa (StatsSA) will hand over the Census 2022 Report to the Mpumalanga Premier, Ms Refilwe Mtshweni-Tsipane. Census report is an important data source used for planning, and is essential for the state to take evidence-based decisions.

StatsSA handed over the national results of the Census 2022 to the President, Mr Cyril Ramaphosa in October this year.
