SASAS offers government departments and other institutions the opportunity to purchase questions in the SASAS Client Survey.  Organisations can  participate in the Client Survey by including a module of questions, either on a once-off basis or repeated at periodic intervals, to assess trends in the views on issues that relate to your department’s or organisation’s core mandate. We are currently preparing for the next survey round, with the fieldwork scheduled to take place in September.

Since the client purchases a set of questions (recommended minimum is 20) in an already existing survey, the cost is substantially reduced by leveraging the economies of scale. As part of these costs, the HSRC offers the following:

  • Assistance with the design of the module
  • High quality sampling techniques
  • Face-to-face interviews with a nationally representative sample of South Africans
  • Quality control and data analysis
  • A dataset in SPSS, SAS and STATA formats (convertible to MS Excel) containing the module’s data together with background variables;
  • Strict standards of Ethics in research
  • If costed, the HSRC also provides a full comprehensive report of the results 

Should you wish use SASAS to assess attitudes, perceptions and behaviours through a set of questions, please do not hesitate to contact the SASAS coordinators.
