The Municipal Barometer is a web-based portal that provides municipalities and citizens with local level data so municipalities can make informed and resolute decisions to deliver on their mandates. The portal provides information on local demographic trends, social development, economic growth and development, environment and municipal finances from 1996 to 2016. Data can be examined at district, local municipality, or provincial levels.
