The first Rugby World Cup (RWC) was co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia in May and June 1987. A total of 16 countries competed in the inaugural tournament and seven out of 16 places were automatically filled by the International Rugby Football Board (IRFB) members made up of New Zealand, Australia, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and France. Invitations were sent to the other countries to fill the remaining nine places. Unfortunately, South Africa could not compete in the first two RWCs which took place in 1987 and 1991 because of the international sporting boycott due to apartheid. It was only in 1995 that South Africa was able to compete in a RWC tournament after the new democratic government was elected in 1994. Not only did South Africa host the 1995 RWC, it won the tournament by defeating New Zealand in the final, which is now remembered as one of he greatest moments in South Africa’s sporting history.

In this month’s issue of Mbalo Brief, our educational article is based on the key findings from the Governance, Public Safety and Justice Survey (GPSJS) 2018/19 (Statistical release P0340), which was published by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) on 14 August 2019.

MEDIA STATEMENT

For immediate release???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? 11 October? 2019

Misleading information about Stats SA field staff

Owing to the nature of surveys we conduct, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) continuously engages with communities. We value and understand the importance of trust between the organisation and the communities we collect data from. An unfortunate incident recently occurred whereby Stats SA field staff were suspected of child trafficking by community members of Zone 20 in KwaLanga.

On 19 September 2019, two of our field staff were conducting their daily field visits in the Langa areas in Cape Town in an attempt to establish contact with a representative of the sampled household for data collection purposes. At the time of the incident, the fieldworkers were seen engaging a minor representative of the household, leading to the neighbour deducing that something suspicious was taking place. The neighbour alerted other residents who gathered around and threatened the safety of our field staff, leading to field workers finding refuge in one of the nearby houses until the arrival of the police.

The manner in which this incident was handled is regrettable, notwithstanding the reputational damage this is likely to cause. We are requesting that communities please check the credentials of any person who comes to their door. Stats SA field staff are issued with branded identity cards and field gear. Where possible, vehicles are also visibly branded.

Stats SA would like to inform the community that we are in field for the Census 2021 Mini Test from 09 October to 6 November. The list of areas that will be visited during this exercise are listed below.

In the event that communy members are doubtful of the legitimacy of the person at their door they are encouraged to reach out to the protection services and avoid acts of vigilantism.

We wish to reassure our communities that, as an organisation, we will do everything in our power to communicate with residents to announce our presence in their areas.

If you need to verify that the person at your door is employed by Stats SA, please contact:

Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) staff will be in the field conducting the Census 2021 Mini Test from 9 October to 6 November 2019 in selected areas around the country. Fieldworkers will visit households in Buffalo City, Ekurhuleni, Mangaung, Umgungudlovu, Polokwane, Emalahleni, Kimberley, Rustenburg and Cape Town.

The purpose of the Census 2021 Mini Test is to test data collection methods, questionnaire and operation systems to prepare for the population census that will be conducted in 2021. Data collected in a census is used by government and other sectors of society for planning and decision making, including the allocation of government funds to provinces and municipalities. It is crucial for all households to participate as, in so doing, they will ensure that the country has the correct numbers needed for planning and implementation of programmes and policies. Population censuses are the key source of small-area data about the population and the socio-economic dynamics in the country.

Census 2021 will be the first population count to use new methods of data collection that involve the use of digital devices. Fieldworkers will administer the census questionnaire face to face with respondents using the Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI), i.e. capturing the information on a digital device rather than a paper questionnaire and, where applicable, the option of Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI), whereby a respondent completes the questionnaire via the web, may be used.

As part of Stats SA’s quality assessment processes, an independent survey called the Post Enumeration Survey (PES) will be conducted after the Census 2021 Mini Test data collection. The Census 2021 Mini Test PES will be conducted from 14 November 2019 to 13 December 2019 in order to evaluate the quality of the Census 2021 Mini Test. PES field workers will visit dwellings in selected areas to administer a PES questionnaire. Households may be re-visited from 20 January to 14 February 2020 to obtain missing or additional information.

The base for any census is an updated list of structures (the Geospatial Information Frame, or GIF), which is sub-divided into workloads called Enumeration Areas, which guide field staff about the dwellings they should visit during the data collection period. Frame Update field staff are already in the field working across the country to ensure that an updated, comprehensive list of structures is available for Census 2021.

Stats SA fieldworkers can be identified through the official Stats SA Identification (ID) Card displaying the Stats SA logo, the photograph and unique number of the fieldworker. Respondents can also contact the Census 2021 Toll-free number (0800?110?248) to verify the fieldworkers visiting their homes. Once the appointment of field staff has been finalised, an online system will go live whereby respondents will be able to click on a link on the Stats SA website for online verification of Census 2021 field staff.

Stats SA is mandated by the Statistics Act (Act No. 6 of 1999) to collect, analyse and disseminate official statistics. In terms of section 17 of the Act, information collected on individuals and their households remains confidential. The Act also obligates all persons to provide data to any Stats SA official, when requested.

Victims of crime report 2018/19

Statistics South Africa today released the Victims of Crime report, extracted from the Governance, Public Safety and Justice survey( GPSJS). The 2018/19 crime report revealed that the percentage of victims of sexual offence who reported at least one incident is 88%. This is a dramatic increase from 73% in 2017/18.

According to the report, incidences of deliberate damage of residential property and arson, theft of personal property and street robbery increased in 2018/19 compared to 2017/18. There were about 70 000 incidences of deliberate damage of residential property and arson in 2018/19. This crime affected 0.32% of households in South Africa. Female-headed households in the metropolitan areas were the most likely to be victims of such crime.

The Western Cape had the highest (1,9%) percentage of people aged 16 and above who were victims of street robbery compared to other provinces. The weapons used for street robbery were knives (62%) and guns (37%).

In 2018/19 there were about 1,2 million incidences of theft of personal property affecting 2,5% of people aged 16 or older in South Africa. The most likely victims of this crime were males, white, young adults and people living in the Western Cape and Gauteng. The GPSJS estimates of the number of victims who reported to the police are in agreement with SAPS data

The number of incidences for all other crime types remained more or less the same as last year. This includes housebreaking, home robbery, hijacking, car theft, murder and assault. There were about 1,3 million incidences of housebreaking affecting 5,8% of households in South Africa. The most likely victims of housebreaking were male-headed households, households in metros, Indian/Asian households followed by White households, very low and very high income households, households in the Northern Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. About 48% of affected households reported to the police.

An estimated 12 000 murders were committed in 2018/19 affecting about 0.07% of households in South Africa. All affected households reported to the police. According to SAPS data there were 32?000 murders during the same period. The main reason for the huge gap between GPSJS estimates of murder and SAPS statistics is that GPSJS estimates are based of murders that are known to households. SAPS handle murders that may not be known to households such as murders of homeless people, immigrants, temporary visitors and gang related murders.

The survey showed that in 2018/19 there were about 260 000 incidences of home robberies affecting about 1% of all households in South Africa. The most likely victims of home robbery were households in metros, White-headed households, and households headed by young adults. The most common weapons used in home robbery were guns (54%) and knives (47%). About 60% of households reported one or more incidences of home robbery to the police.

In 2018/19 there were about 32 000 incidences of hijacking of motor vehicles. This includes hijacking of trucks. About 0,08% of individuals aged 16 and older were hijacked. About 85% of all hijackings were reported to the police.

In 2018/19 there were about 500 000 incidences of assault experienced by 0,7% of individuals aged 16 or above. The most likely victims of assault were males and young adults. About 50% of victims of assault reported to the police.

The report further shows an increase in percentages of people who felt safe walking alone in their areas during the night from 32% in 2017/18 to 35% in 2018/19. Males felt safer both? during the day and at night (greater percentage of males felt safer). Rural (24%) people felt safer than urban (15%) and people in metros (8%) during the day. About 45% of the people in metros felt unsafe at night compared to urban people (42%) and rural people (39%).

There were about 1,3 million incidences of housebreaking affecting 5,8% of households in South Africa. The most likely victims of housebreaking were male-headed households, households in metros, Indian/Asian households followed by white households, very low and very high-income households, and households in Northern Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. Approximately 48% of affected households reported incidences to the police.

crime1

This is according to the Governance, Public Safety and Justice Survey (GPSJS) 2018/19 released by Stats SA. Data on victims of crime was previously collected through the Victims of Crime Survey (VOCS); this survey was redesigned into the GPSJS to make provision for new information on required on governance. Thus far, two reports from GPSJS have been published – one on governance themes and the other on victims of crime.

In 2018/19 there were about 260 000 incidences of home robberies, affecting roughly 1% of all households in South Africa. The most likely victims of home robbery were households in metros, white-headed households and households headed by young people. The most common weapons used in home robbery were guns (54%) and knives (47%). Around 60% of households reported one or more incidences of home robbery to the police. The number of households that reported incidences of home robbery is about 120?000.

Let us look at some of the key findings of this report.

Theft of motor vehicles

There were an estimated 83 000 incidences of theft of motor vehicles in 2018/19, affecting 0,4% of South African households. The most likely victims of motor vehicle theft were male-headed households, households in metros, white-headed compared to black African households, young adult households compared to households headed by the elderly, and high-income households. About 86% (an estimated 63 000) households that experienced theft of motor vehicles reported this to the police.

Murder

An estimated 12 000 murders were committed in 2018/19, affecting about 0,07% of households in South Africa. All affected households reported incidences of murder to the police. According to SAPS data, there were 32 000 murders during the same period. The main reason for the huge gap between GPSJS estimates of murder and SAPS statistics is that GPSJS estimates are based on murders that are known to households. The SAPS handles murders that may not be known to households such as murders of homeless people, immigrants, temporary visitors and gang-related murders.

Assault

In 2018/19 there were more or less 500 000 incidences of assault experienced by 0,7% of individuals aged 16 or above. The most likely victims of assault were males and the young. About 50% of victims of assault reported these incidences to the police. This amounted to about 140 000 individuals who reported assault to the police. The number recorded by SAPS for the same period was approximately 330 000. The lower estimate from GPSJS may be because GPSJS excludes assault of children under the age of 16.

Hijacking of motor vehicles

There were roughly 32 000 incidences of hijacking of motor vehicles in 2018/19. This includes hijacking of trucks. About 0,08% of individuals aged 16 and older were hijacked. Approximately 85% of all hijackings were reported to the police. The estimated number of hijackings reported to the police was 28?000, while SAPS data reported about 17 000 hijackings.

Theft of personal property

In 2018/19 there were about 1,2 million incidences of theft of personal property affecting 2,5% of people aged 16 or older in South Africa. The most likely victims of this crime were males, white, the young, and people living in Western Cape and Gauteng. The GPSJS estimates of the number of victims who reported these incidences to the police is in agreement with SAPS data.

Street robbery

There were about 580 000 incidences of street robbery in 2018/19, affecting round about 1% of the people aged 16 or older. Males were more than twice as likely as females to be victims of street robbery. Similarly, people living in metropolitan areas were more likely to be victims of street robbery than those living in non-metros. Western Cape had the highest (1,9%) percentage of people aged 16 and above who were victims of street robbery compared to other provinces. The weapons most commonly used for street robbery were knives (62%) and guns (37%).

The perception of safety by people who live in South African is vital. The report indicates that the percentage of people who felt safe walking alone in their areas during the day increased from 79% in 2017/18 to 83% in 2018/19. Those who felt safe walking alone in their areas during the night increased from 29% in 2017/18 to 35% in 2018/19. Males felt safer than females during the day and at night, and those in rural areas (24%) felt safer than those in urban areas (15%) and metros (8%) during the day. About 45% of people in metros felt unsafe at night compared to urban (42%) and rural people (39%).

Just over 1 million births were registered in South Africa in 2018. According to the Recorded live births, 2018 report released by Statistics South Africa, this reflects an increase of 2,0% from 2017 to 2018.

live1

A total of 1 009?065 births were registered in 2018. This includes the total number of births that occurred and were registered for the year 2018, which was 927?113, as well as 81?952 late registrations. This means that 8,1% of births registered during 2018 were registered late. According to the Births and Deaths Registration Amendment Act, a birth must be registered within 30 days of occurrence. However, not all births are registered on time. The report shows that late registration of births, after the lapse of 30 days but before a year, declined from 26,7% in 2014 to 14,2% in 2018. Overall, in the 5-year period (2014–2018), there has been a significant improvement in terms of birth registrations within 30 days from 60,1% in 2014 to 79,6% in 2018.

Mothers in the age group 25?29 years accounted for the highest number of total birth registrations (259 182), followed by those aged 20?24 years (251 551) and 30?34 years (211 251). The lowest number of birth registrations in 2018 occurred for mothers in the 50?54-year age group (381), which is to be expected when the fertility patterns of the country are taken into consideration.

Mothers aged 25–29 and 30?34 years both had the highest proportion (95,6%) of births registered during the year of occurrence, followed by mothers aged 35?39 years (95,2%) and those aged 20–24 years (94,3%). A high proportion of births registered later than the year of occurrence was observed among age groups 10?14 years (60,2%) and 50?54 years (48,6%).

Generally, birth registration remains higher in the most populated provinces in South Africa. The highest proportions of births were registered in Gauteng (20,9%), followed by KwaZulu-Natal (20,4%). The provinces with lower birth registrations in 2018 were Northern Cape at 2,6% and Free State at 5,1%. For all age groups, the highest number of birth registrations for each age category was recorded in either Gauteng or in KwaZulu-Natal. The only exception was teenage mothers (aged 10–14), where Eastern Cape had the highest number of births occurring to teen mothers (317 births), followed closely by KwaZulu-Natal with 310 birth registrations to teenage mothers.

Baby forenames and surnames

In 2018, the most popular first names for males were Enzokuhle, followed by Lethabo and Melokuhle. These three were also the top three names for 2017 births, and the order remained the same. For middle names, Junior was the most popular, followed by Blessing and Gift.

Amongst females, the three most popular first names for 2018 were Enzokuhle, Melokuhle and then Amahle. Similar to males, the order remained the same as that of 2017. For middle names amongst girls, the most popular choices were Precious, Princess and Angel, in that order. Enzokuhle, Melokuhle, Omphile and Amogelang were in the top ten list of names for both sexes. All the top ten first names for both sexes were of native languages. Most of the popular baby names for males and females reflect positive hopes for the child, express beliefs or are inspired by positive connotations of both love and acceptance.

Nationally, the most prevalent surname for both sexes was Dlamini, followed by Nkosi and then Ndlovu. It is interesting to note that nine of the surnames were from the Nguni clans, namely isiZulu, isiXhosa, isiNdebele and siSwati. Mokoena – which featured as the sixth most popular surname – was the only non-Nguni surname.
