  • Hundenborn, Janina; Woolard, Ingrid; Leibbrandt, Murray (2016-11)
    The first democratic elections in 1994 brought about the promise for equal opportunity and an overall improvement of living standards for the majority of the South African population. The newly elected government promised ...
  • Woolard, Ingrid; Leibbrandt, Murray (Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit, 2010-10)
    At the time of the transition to democracy in 1994, the South African social security system was already notably well developed for a middle income country (Lund 1993; Van der Berg 1997; Case and Deaton 1998). This fact ...
  • Lilenstein, Kezia; Woolard, Ingrid; Leibbrandt, Murray (2016-10)
    South Africa is distinguished from other countries by its history of Apartheid, in which race-based policies resulted in vastly inferior education and labour market opportunities for African, Coloured and Asian/Indian ...

    This paper surveys the South African and international literature surrounding the impact of cash transfers on labour supply. We find that although social transfers are condemned for creating state-dependency, the reality ...

    This paper provides a brief summary of key labour market outcomes in Wave 2 of NIDS and also examines labour market transitions that occurred between Wave 1 and Wave 2. This corresponds approximately to changes between ...
  • Eyal, Katherine; Woolard, Ingrid; Burns, Justine (2018-08)
    Please note: This paper has been updated. Cash transfers are a well-known tool in the developing world to alleviate poverty. However, much of the research evaluating these programs has focussed on short term outcomes, ...
  • Tondini, Alessandro; Ardington, Cally; Woolard, Ingrid (2017-05)
    We investigate the impact of a reform of the public, non-contributory pension system in South Africa, which lowered the age of retirement from 65 to 60 for men only. Despite no explicit requirement to stop working when ...
  • Levy, Brian; Hirsch, Alan; Woolard, Ingrid (2014-11)
    In a dramatic few years, South Africa shifted from being trapped in an apparently intractable conflict between a dominant white minority and an oppressed black majority to being a democratic state with an outstanding ...
  • Budlender, Joshua; Leibbrandt, Murray; Woolard, Ingrid (2015-08)
    Unlike some other countries, there is no legislated poverty line for South Africa. Various absolute poverty lines exist, but there has been little analysis of the methodological decisions underpinning each line. There ...

  • Ebrahim, Amina; Woolard, Ingrid; Leibbrandt, Murray (2013-12)
    In comparison to other continents, Africa has received little scholarly attention with regard to household composition. Household composition is endogenous to a variety of welfare issues and little is understood about the ...
  • Finn, Arden; Leibbrandt, Murray; Woolard, Ingrid (2013-07)
    Gauging levels of welfare using data on income and expenditure is informative yet limited and can be enhanced by including non-money-metric measures. Nationally representative data sets from 1993 and 2010-2011 which cover ...
