Analysing data from Stats SA

Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) is the goverment-run statistician in South Africa. They publish a lot of stats about SA, you can find them here: http://www.statssa.gov.za/. I’ve decided to start doing some analyses of the data they make available for the public to download. My first start is writing code to load the data they provide as I’ve chosen to work with the text files they make available. I’ve posted my IPython notebook showing how to load these files here: http://nbviewer.ipython.org/gist/williamjshipman/bb23babe6ffd04a8cb8a

The repository containing this notebook and the data I’ve used are here: https://bitbucket.org/williamjshipman/statssa-blog. I’ll be uploading additional notebooks (and the data they use) to that repo. I hope you find them interesting.
