Welcome to our Data Portal

DataFirst is a data service based at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. We give researchers online access to African data and online help with data usage.

You can download microdata from this site. Register on the site and use the email you will receive to activate your account. Then select the dataset you want and download the data files and documentation from the landing page for each dataset.

Datasets may be Public Use Data (available immediately), Licensed Data (downloadable from an email link we will send you) or Secure Data available via our Secure Data Service. We also provide links to African data available from other sites.

Please take note of the conditions of use for each dataset that you agree to when downloading the data.
