Mapping the racial divide in South Africa
South Africa’s population distribution across the country’s three major cities shows that very little has happened in the way of breaking through the “spacial legacy” of apartheid and becoming a more integrated society.
This is illustrated more clearly by looking at dot-map comparisons of the racial distribution of South Africa, which are available online.
The maps were produced by Capetonian software developer and cartographer, Adrian Frith, using data from census 2011 and 2001.
Frith has also produced an interactive dot map of South Africa’s racial spread using small-area census data from 2011, with each dot representing 50 people.
