ICT in the Province

Personal ICT

Mpumalanga Personal ICT Statistics

All data was extraced from StatsOnline (http://statssa.gov.za/). the This figure combines the data from several survey, namely the Census 2001, the General Household Survey 2005 & 2009 and the Community Survey 2007. The methodology and questions are not completely standardized across those surveys. It is therefore questionable whether the data actually is compatible and can be combined as presented in the figure. In absence of better alternatives we assumed that it is fine to compare the data in order to get an impression of general tendencies.

The figure gives an impression about the availability of personal ICTs within the province. The density of landline connections is well below average in Mpumalanga and as a result the percentage of private internet connections is below average as well. Unfortunatly statistics about internet access via third locations have not been comparable accross the surveys. It can be assumed that 5 to 10% have a access through third places like libraries, school or internet cafés excluding place of work. At work 7.8% state to have access to the internet.Ownership of cellphones has increased to a very high extent, while demand to landline telephones has decreased. Statistical data indicates that more than 88 % of the inhabitants have a cellphone. The cellphone is therefore media number one in Mpumalanga, overtaking even the radio. The spread of cellphones is well above average.

The province also has a slightly above average percentage of household with televisions and radios. The density of households with computers is below average.
