Most Populated Provinces in South Africa


Since the 1994 election, South Africa has been divided into nine provinces. These provinces vary widely in population density, from the highly urbanized Gauteng having nearly 700 people per square kilometre, to the mostly-desert Northern Cape having less than four people per square kilometre. There have only been three censuses, in 1996, 2001 and 2011 since the creation of the provinces in 1994.
