The Data Quality Project (DQP), funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has been running since 2006. The aim of the Project is to deepen the capacity of South African researchers to conduct top-quality research using survey data that is placed in the public domain by the government statistics agency, Statistics South Africa. This is accomplished through an intensive examination of the comparability and usability of these datasets, and liaison with the national data producer and data users to ensure appropriate analysis of this data. This website provides access to Data Quality Project Output
This includes research notes on anomalies in data files, as well as scholarly papers on error-corrections and the appropriate usage of national survey datasets. Revised and corrected data files and documentation are also made available via this repository.
