Provincial GDP per capita in SA

Updated estimates from Statistics South Africa suggest that despite an upward revision to provincial GDP estimates, per capita GDP has only risen in one province since 2013: the Eastern Cape. It is worth noting that the Eastern Cape is estimated to have had a declining population since 2021, which is expected to continue. South Africa is one of only a small number of large economies that have experienced a decline in GDP per capita since 2010. South Africa is one of the few large economies globally that the IMF predicts will have further declines in per capita income.
