Abstract

South Africa's democracy was born in 1994. It is therefore essential that the government and its institutions be informed of the views and needs of the citizenry. National surveys are a means to reveal these needs and views. This section presents a discussion of responses to a set of statements on democracy as a system of government that was included in the HSRC public opinion survey of November 1999.
