The state of local government finances is of particular importance, given that this is the tier of government responsible for service delivery on the ground. Since 2002, Statistics South Africa has been undertaking an annual financial census of municipalities covering all municipalities. Its purpose is to provide information to researchers, policy-makers, economists and other users for further analysis and assessment of the state of local government finances. The information collected was published at national and provincial level up to 2004 and local (municipal) level was introduced in 2005 till to date due to many requests by the stakeholders and users.
