South African Social Attitudes Survey 2014
The South African Social Attitudes Survey (SASAS) is a nationally representative, repeated cross-sectional survey that has been conducted annually by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) since 2003.
The survey series charts and explains the interaction between the country's changing institutions, its political and economic structures, and the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns of its diverse populations.
In 2014-15 SASAS, in cooperation with the ESS, developed and fielded a survey where questions from the ESS rotating modules on “Social inequalities in health” (ESS7), “Understandings and Evaluations of Democracy” (ESS6) and “Trust in Police and Criminal Courts” (ESS5) were included.
This collaboration was in part financed via the UK ESRC component of the Newton Fund. Supporting funds were also received from the South African National Research Foundation (NRF).
