pdf.png Determinants of Income Mobility and Household Poverty Dynamics in South Africa 2004 HOT

In this paper we analyse household income mobility dynamics among Africans in South  Africa’s most populous province, Kwazulu-Natal, between 1993 and 1998. Compared to industrialized and most developing countries, mobility has been quite high, as might have been expected after the transition in South Africa. This finding is robust when measurement error is controlled for. When disaggregating the sources of mobility, we find that demographic changes and employment changes account for a most of the mobility observed which is related to rapidly shifting household boundaries and a very volatile labour market in an environment of high unemployment. Using a multivariate analysis, we see that transitory incomes play a large role. We also find four types of poverty traps, associated with large initial household size, poor initial education, poor initial asset endowment and poor initial employment access that dominate the otherwise observed regression towards to the mean.

pdf.png Programme Of Action For The Attainment Of 2014 Universal Access To Basic Services Scoping Report 2011 HOT

(0 votes)

Download

A number of institutions in all three spheres of government are charged with the responsibility of providing basic (and higher) levels of service to the residents of South Africa. There are significant shortcomings in the organizational arrangements and resources of many of these institutions, while others perform satisfactorily to well. A critical part of achieving the 2014 targets for basic services is to assist the “under-performing” institutions to improve, building upon good practice in the better/well performing institutions. The purpose of this report is to develop a programme of action for the realisation of the 2014 target date for the universal access to basic services (water, sanitation, electricity, refuse removal) and services in general (clinics, hospitals, schools, roads).
