What really hit home to me is just how much better off I am than many people in South Africa. It is very sobering.
The numbers may seem off from the 51 million people that StatsSA reported, that is because I have removed people who answered "not applicable" or "not specified" which lowered the amount of the population to 46 867 063 - still enough of a data set to play with.
If you want to understand how this works, you can see the code (in a very messy state) at BitBucket.
