South African Data Archive


The statistics currently shown are wrong but the harvesting operations should restart over the summer.

We are doing everything we can to bring the service back to normal and we apologise for the interruption to the service.

The South African Data Archive (SADA) serves as a broker between a range of data providers (e.g. statistical agencies, government departments, opinion and market research companies and academic institutions) and the research community. The archive does not only preserve data for future use, but also adds value to the collections. It safeguards datasets and related documentation and attempts to make it as easily accessible as possible for research and educational purposes. SADA's data holdings are from a wide range of areas, such as Censuses and household surveys, Omnibus and international studies, Demographic and health related studies, Substance abuse, Crime, Income and poverty, Inter-group relations, Labour and business, Education and training, and Political perceptions and attitudes. The expansion to other sciences and the anticipated establishment of virtual archives will increase the benefits to the research community. SADA also hopes to reflect the government's core priority themes in its holdings, for e.g. HIV/AIDS studies.
