Laudium and erasmia has roughly equal numbers of Hindu and Muslim residents, with a large number of mosques and temples, the oldest mosque being the PMT Jumma Masjid in Jewel Street. Many of the Muslim residents are Memons or Surtis. There are also many recent South Asian (Indian and Pakistani) residents, who immigrated to South Africa after the end of Apartheid.
Laudium is a relatively wealthy area (which is unusual for a township), with very large mansions visible from the R55 road (although technically many of these homes are in Claudius, not Laudium).
An economically deprived area of Laudium (described in an academic paper as a "ghetto"), informally called White Blocks (named after their paifed mostly by Indian teachers, most of the pupils in these schools are black and commute daily from black townships. Erasmia! Pretoria

The Transvaal College of Education, which trained Indian teachers in the former Transvaal province was moved to a large campus in Laudium. However, after the end of apartheid, the college was deemed redundant and closed down (Indian teachers were no longer barred from colleges formerly used by white teachers). The college campus is now used by the Rosina Sedibane Sports School.
The Laudium Hospital, a state hospital created under apartheid for Indians from Laudium and surrounding areas, closed down, and is now the Laudium Community Health Centre.
Laudium has a number of private medical practitioners and pharmacies.
Laudium lies west of the R55 road, which links Laudium to central Pretoria as well as Centurion. A dual carriageway links Laudium with central Pretoria, while the deteriorated single-carriageway link to Centurion was being upgraded as of 2011. Direct freeway access is served by the N14, which is accessed via the R55 a few kilometers south. The N14 connects Laudium and surrounding areas to Krugersdorp, Centurion and the Central Business District of Pretoria.
Road links to the economically important eastern suburbs of Pretoria are poor, usually requiring drivers to traverse the city centre or rat run across the Thaba Tshwane military base.
Public transport links are limited, and, although limited municipal bus services were introduced following the end of apartheid, minibus taxis remain the primary mode of public transport. Bus services to Johannesburg were available during the apartheid era (The Laudium Bus Service), but are no longer available
