Cape Town - There has been big growth in the number of households in Gauteng over the past decade, according to Census 2011 results, released on Tuesday.

The Western Cape showed an almost as high growth rate.

Census 2011 is a snapshot of the situation in the country at midnight on 9 October last year.
