Preface In publishing the twenty-fifth edition of South African Statistics, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) continues a tradition of making available in a single volume, comprehensive time series statistical data on important facets of South African life. Data brought together in this edition are drawn only from Stats SA's data sources. Stats SA data are mainly published as statistical releases and reports. We have updated data for the 2011 and 2012 period. However, data for this period that have not been released by end of August 2013, have not been incorporated in this edition. Where 2011 or 2012 figures were not available, the most recent data are provided. I encourage you to continue giving us feedback on this publication in order for us to improve and meet your statistical needs.
