Abstract

Despite richness, South Africa lacks a national recurring state of development report that informs and advises all players on critical development issues and which includes both quantitative and qualitative data. It is posited, that in order to facilitate effective development planning, institutions working in the development terrain need relevant, timeous and appropriate information on the state of the country's development, as well as on the best ways of going about achieving the country's development priorities.
