SASAS survey hits the road
The Democracy Governance and Service Delivery (DGSD) research programme has launched the longitudinal study, South African Social Attitudes Survey (SASAS).
This is a survey on opinion amongst the South African population covering topics on a wide range of social matters such as communications, politics, education, unemployment, and the problems of the aged and inter-group relations.
A total 10 500 individuals in the country have been selected to participate.
