South Africa: KwaZulu-Natal Income Dynamics Study (KIDS), 1993-1998
Combines the KwaZulu-Natal portion of the 1st South African national household survey, the Project for Statistics on Living Standards and Development (PSLSD) with a re-survey of the same households from March to June 1998. Combining the 2 surveys yields a panel dataset in which the same individuals and households have been interviewed at 2 points in time. In 1993, the KwaZulu-Natal portion of the PSLSD sample was representative at the provincial level, conditional on the accuracy of the 1991 census and other information used for the sampling frame, and contained 1519 households of all races. It was decided not to re-survey the small number of white (112) and coloured (53) households in 1998. So the 1998 sample includes only African and Indian households. The 1993 survey was an integrated household survey similar in design to a World Bank Living Standards Measurement Survey. The main component was a comprehensive household survey that collected a broad array of information on the socio-economic condition of households and included sections on household demographics, household environment, education, food and non-food expenditures, remittances, employment and income, agricultural activities, health, and anthropometry. The 1998 household questionnaire largely followed the 1993 version with a few important changes: (1) greater focus on individual ownership of assets and control over their use; (2) expanded emphasis on those individuals not living in the household but economically linked to it; (3) four new sections on economic shocks, social capital, assets brought to marriage, and household decisionmaking. Community surveys were also completed in both years; the 1998 community questionnaire included new sections on economic shocks and social capital in addition to sections on local economic activity, infrastructure, and prices.
