(0 votes)

The working paper on which this policy brief is based reviews education datasets available in South Africa, mostly from the Department of Basic Education (DBE). The working paper serves as an inventory for anyone wanting to know what data are available in South Africa, how the data may be accessed, what the quality is like and in what formats the data may be accessed.1 This brief describes these datasets and the data elements of each, explains the need for data integration as a data management strategy, and offers recommendations for improving the quality and accessibility of datasets for both researchers and policymakers.

This paper outlines a 2011 study commissioned by the Presidency’s Programme to Support Pro-Poor Policy Development (PSPPD) which promotes evidence-based policy making  (EBPM) in South Africa. The study provides a descriptive snapshot of attitudes to evidence-use in policy making. All 54 senior government officials interviewed felt that evidence-use is too limited to ensure relevant, effective policy responses.
