Social facilities index (3/6)

The social facility index measures the distance factor from schools, hospitals, clinics, emergency services and SAPS stations. These elements consider the relevant distance factor from each of these facilities described in the CSIR guidelines for social facilities. An attraction reach analysis was also done to identify how each hexagon cell in the municipality is served and how many facilities a location can access—combining the analysis results for different facilities provided an overall facility index for the municipal area, as with the urban morphology index.
