The Statistical Office of South Africa has extended the deadline for Western Cape residents to register in the 2022 census.

Their term has been extended until May 31, 2022.

The current extension was due to end on Saturday as the province’s count lags behind the rest of the country.

General statistician Risenga Maluleke says residents, however, responded positively to urgent calls from the Western Cape government and municipalities last month.

Maluleke says the estimated number of households has jumped from 49% ahead of the Easter weekend to 70% this week.

He warned that the low level of participation could affect the overall result, which is the basis for the allocation of state budget funds.

StatsSA urges Western Cape residents to use an online questionnaire or respond to census workers.

Slow absorption

Last month, general statistician Risenga Maluleke challenged the slow spread of registration in households.

The census will cost 3.2 billion rupees, and the results will be published in 12 months.
