Do not know
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
'Mains electricity' refers to cases whereby electricity is supplied by companies like Eskom and other local ones such as municipalities. This means that the electricity from a generator and other devices is not part of the mains supply.
The purpose of this question is to find out how many households have access or a connection to the mains electricity supply, the reason being that some households, much as they have access to it, may not be using it as the main source of energy.
