South Africa's 2011 census has started, with the homeless and babies born after midnight being the first to be counted.
In a press statement, Statistics South Africa points out that school children and teachers will help ensure every household in South Africa is counted.
It says as part of the learner ambassador programme, pupils will report whether their families have been counted to their teachers. The Stats SA states that enumerators will check with the schools whether any households have been missed.
