About the PSLSD

During 1992 the World Bank approached SALDRU to coordinate a study in South Africa called the Project on Statistics for Living Standards and Development. This study was carried out during 1993 and consisted of two phases. The first of these was a situation analysis, consisting of a number of regional poverty profiles and cross-cutting studies on a national level. The second phase was a country wide household survey conducted in the latter half of 1993. The Project has been built on the Second Carnegie Inquiry into Poverty, which assessed the situation up to the mid-1980's. While preparation of these papers for the situation analysis, using common guidelines involved much discussion and criticism amongst all those involved in the Project, the final paper remains the responsibility of its authors.
