Inclusion of Census 2011 Geographic Variables in NIDS_20140226.pdf

 

There were significant changes in provincial and district council boundaries and changes in geo type between the 2001 Census and the 2011 Census. This document outlines how both the Census 2001 and the Census 2011 variables have been used in the NIDS data set and the impact on other variables like weights, imputed income and expenditure variables, etc. It also has important cautionary notes about the differences between 2001 and 2011 geography.

pdf Profile of children living in South Africa using the National Income Dynamics Study Popular

By 157 downloads

This Children Count brief provides an overview of the situation of children in South
Africa, drawing on data from the first wave of the National Income Dynamics Study.
NIDS is a national panel survey, and the fieldwork for the first wave was done in
2008. Households and individuals covered in the first wave will be tracked every two
years. This will allow researchers to follow the progress of the child panel over time
and place, and thereby describe the dynamics of child poverty rather than present a
static profile. The data from the first wave serves as a baseline.

2013 Release Overview_v1_0.pdf

September 2013 marks the release of NIDS Wave 3. During the production of Wave 3 data certain information came to the fore that required changes to the Wave 1 and Wave 2 datasets. Fieldwork being a process of continuous improvement, enhanced processes employed during Wave 3 have resulted in more accurate information. In some cases we managed to interview respondents whom we previously did not interview because of lack of availability or difficulties in locating the households. We used this information to update previously collected information in both Wave 1 and Wave 2 data. Furthermore, new variables were added.

Some of the changes necessitated a recalculation of the weights. At the same time, the weights were also calibrated to the latest mid-year population estimates.

Important: We highly recommend users download the latest Wave 1 and Wave 2 datasets, especially if it is to be used in conjunction with Wave 3. Every effort was made to ensure that the latest datasets are internally consistent and we believe this release carries the best information.

Secondly, we advise users to carefully review their do-files, especially changes made to specific records. For reasons described below the identifier might have changed and/or the underlying data might have been cleaned.

This document summarises the changes to the Waves 1 and 2. It is predominantly aimed at users who previously used NIDS datasets to help them understand what is different in the latest release. We encourage all users to reference the User Manuals for more detail about the methodology and details of data collection.
