Abstract

An assessment of the quality of life of South Africans serves to provide a useful barometer for the government's progress in its efforts to provide all South Africans with access to basic services, as well as being useful for gauging the mood in the country. FAIRUZ GAIBIE examines indicators that reveal what makes South Africans happy, satisfied and optimistic; and who those happy, satisfied and optimistic South Africans are.
