Launch Of The 2012 Development Indicators
The honourable Minister Collins Chabane officially launched the 2012 Development Indicators in Cape Town. As with the previous publications, the sixth edition employs quantitative measures to track progress made in implementing government policies based on data sourced from research institutions in South Africa and elsewhere, government databases and official statistics. The following themes are covered:
• Economic growth and transformation
• Poverty and inequality
• Households and community assets
• Social cohesion
• Safety and security
• International relations and good governance
In addition, we include information on demographic trends, transport infrastructure profile and energy, as annexures.
The trend analysis that is included for each indicator confirms our understanding of the human development progress that we are making as a nation in key policy areas and further points out areas where we need to put extra effort.
In this new editing, we also provide a brief analysis about what the democratic government inherited in 1994 as a way of contextualising the interpretation of each of the indicators.
