Unless someone provides demographic information about Upington (not it's municipality) then I will delete the demographic section, since that information should only be used on the article of the municipality unless used for comparison on this page. Bezuidenhout (talk) 23:03, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

I think removing it is a good idea. It is highly unlikely that we will see future census data for individual towns/cities as it is all done on municipal level. --NJR_ZA (talk) 05:17, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Then how did people get demographic information at Stilfontein or Vanderbijlpark (see their demographic sections). Bezuidenhout (talk) 08:20, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
