50 Priority Wards
During 2011, GCRO embarked on a statistical and spatial analysis process to provide strategic decision support to the Gauteng Planning Commission. The aim of the project was to select 50 wards based on the 2011 local election ward boundaries using indicators developed to identify priority wards, on a basis that does not only relate to poverty in its basic sense. These wards are referred to as ‘Priority Wards’ (PW). More information about the 50 priority wards project is available on the 50 priority wards project page.
The 50 priority wards theme contains the results of the project in the form of an interactive table and dynamic maps, as a unique theme in the GCRO GIS viewer. Users can interact with the 50 priority wards, or select, map, print and export individual indicators.
