South Africa - KwaZulu and Natal Income Dynamics Study
Data type
  • Household
  • Longitudinal

This is the third wave of the panel survey known as KIDS. The 1998 survey revisited households in the KwaZulu-Natal province that had participated in the national Project for Statistics on Living Standards and Development (PSLSD), a Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS). Although the 1993 survey was representative of all ethnicities, the 1998 and 2004 surveys excluded white and colored households due to the small population of these groups in KwaZulu-Natal. Only African and Indian households were surveyed. In addition to core members who were surveyed in 1993 and 1998, the 2004 survey covered children of core members 18 years and older who had established new households. GPS coordinates were used in the course of this survey.
