Our latest statistical report takes a deep and practical dive into the demographic change, implications and policy challenges in the O.R. Tambo District Municipality.
It seeks to achieve four objectives:
(1) to present the current demographic situation of O.R. Tambo and to diagnose demographic issues facing the district;
(2) to analyse demographic changes in the district and to assess their various implications for socio-economic development indicators;
(3) to propose demographic policy priorities for the district that respond to both demographic challenges and demographic transition; and
(4) to ascertain whether O.R Tambo’s youth bulge will create a demographic dividend?
Findings from the analysis of demographic situation in O.R. Tambo district indicate that the district is still at the pre-to-early stage of demographic dividend, as it lags in key human development indicators and has a higher fertility rate.You can read the study here: https://ecsecc.org/infocentreitem/demographic-change-implications-policy-challenges-
