Comparability — General

Where boundaries changed over time, units were harmonized to create units with boundaries that remain stable over time.

  • Between 2001 and 2007 - Parts of North West became Northern Cape.
  • Between 2001 and 2007 - Parts of Gauteng became North West.
  • Between 2001 and 2007 - Parts of Mpumalanga became Limpopo.
  • Between 2001 and 2007 - Parts of Mpumalanga became Gauteng.
  • Between 2001 and 2007 - Parts of KwaZulu-Natal became Eastern Cape.
  • ~2005: Umzimkulu municipality moved from Eastern Cape to KwaZulu-Natal.
  • Between 2007 and 2011, parts of North West became Gauteng

The universe differs significantly between samples. The 1996 census addressed the question to everyone who ever moved from their dwelling of birth. The 2007 census only asked the question of persons who moved since October 2001 and the 2011 census only asked the question of persons who moved after October 2001 -- slightly over 5 and 10 years prior, respectively.

This variable is similar to MIG1_5_ZA for 2001 South Africa, which gives province of residence 5 years prior to that census.
