Embracing a multisectoral approach, this study seeks to understand the issues that impact the population of South Africa''s Western Cape. Emphasizing the Cape''s goal of a sustainable "home for all," this overview highlights the salient demographic features and reviews the policy frameworks that have influenced population and planning, setting the context for a detailed examination of current data. The analysis focuses on the levels and determinants of population vulnerability such as mortality, child maltreatment, levels of ageing, HIV/AIDS, noncitizen populations, and risk factors in education, thereby drawing attention to the implications for policy. Penned by researchers and academics with local and international experience in fields ranging from sociology, public health, and medical demography to urban planning, education, and psychology, this volume will be invaluable to policymakers, planners, and students.
