South Africa’s Magnifying Glass

South Africa’s Magnifying Glass

A profile of Gauteng province South Africa's Magnifying Glass was a report prepared by the HSRC to address the challenges for reliable socio-economic information and analysis to inform the process of meeting numerous and complex development challenges. This report focuses on the South Africa's heartland, Gauteng province. The topics covered in the report range from a qualitative description of the province to analyses of hard data with a view to describing and interpreting the demographic and other changes that have taken place, the educational, language and cultural features of the province, the level, distribution and accessibility of social infrastructural facilities, and the provincial economy. Gauteng was selected as a study area as a result of the work by the HSRC's Centre for Development Policy Planning for the SALDRU/World Bank living standards and development study, and in the publication of A Profile of Poverty in the PWV. The report is aimed at meeting the needs of policy makers and planners in Gauteng province and specifically at middle-level management within provincial and local government. The data have been collected by HSRC researchers, while others are the product of the relationship with outside institutions and service providers, such as the Central Statistical Service (CSS) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
