Employment amongst black Africans remains scarce, with black women having the highest rate of unemployment and the lowest employment opportunities.

That's according to the results of Census 2011 released in Pretoria yesterday.Official unemployment for black women stands at 41.2%.

The expanded definition of unemployment puts the rate for black women at almost 53%. The Media Spokesperson of SA Stats  Trevor Oosterwyk says we must understand that the Census is not the official unemployment rate.

Oosterwyk says the unemployment statistics are important for government and policy makers.
