Demographic Information

The region's population is estimated to be 433,054 (Census 2001, Stats SA). However, this figure is inaccurate because the number of people living in the inner city on a temporary basis is unknown.

There is a distinct difference in demographics between the inner city and the southern part of this region. In the past few years higher-income residents and whites have moved away from the inner city bowl and are being replaced by a lower-income population of blacks.

This is in complete contrast to the southern part of the region – Mulbarton, Glenvista, Aspen Hills, Allan Manor, Bassonia and so forth – which is 66 percent white and relatively youthful, with 38 percent being under 25 years old.

The population of Johannesburg South is young and growing, partly because of an influx of new home owners from Soweto drawn by better housing, land value and facilities, as well as swift, convenient access to their places of employment.
