As part of International Open Data Day we spent the morning with a bunch of like minded people poring over some open Census South Africa data. Excellent initiative, @opendatadurban, I’m very excited to see where this is all going and look forward to contributing to the journey!
The data above show the distribution of ages in a segment of the South African population who have either no schooling (blue) or have completed Grade 12 (orange).

Being a subset of the complete data set, this does not tell the full story, but it’s still a rather interesting view on the state of education in South Africa.
