STUDY DESCRIPTION
SADA 0081: TITLE: Perceptions of Blacks on the 1996 Census, 1995

PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATORS: South African Communication Services & Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) DEPOSITOR: Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) ABSTRACT: This project commissioned by the South African Communication Services was designed to obtain and gather data about the perceptions of black inhabitants of the Eastern Transvaal Province with regard to the 1996 Census. The target area was the Eastern Transvaal Province, including rural, urban, townships and squatters. Interviewers were recruited telephonically – the minimum educational qualification was Matric, and preference was given to interviewers with previous experience. Training of interviewers was conducted by each fieldwork organiser at appropriate venues at the places of operation. The sample size of 508 respondents was fully realised. GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Eastern Transvaal, South Africa. IMPORTANT VARIABLES: The questionnaire was divided into two main sections. Section A contained the biographical data of the respondent and Section B dealt with main content questions. Important, well-constructed questions were about the census in general and not specifically about the 1996 census. DEMOGRAPHIC VARIABLES: Standard, general demographic and biographic information in Section A of the questionnaire. UNIVERSE: The universe that was sampled comprised the socio-economic categories of “squatters”, “self-governing territories”, “black townships”, and “rural component (farms)” within the black population group and in the Eastern Transvaal Province only. METHOD OF DATA COLLECTION – SAMPLING. The sample size of 508 respondents was fully realised. The sampling methodology employed was stratified probability sampling. Stratification took place by “Socio-economic category”, namely “squatters”, “self-governing territories”, “black townships”, and “rural component (farms)” within the black population group only and were clustered as 2 times 4 respondents per Enumeration Area (EA). Respondents in one EA were clustered 1 times 4. FIELDWORK AGENCY: MarkData of the Human Sciences Research Council conducted the fieldwork as described in the method of data collection above. TYPE OF INSTRUMENT: Structured interview schedule/questionnaire.

UNITS OF OBSERVATION: One case/unit equals one person/respondent. WEIGHTING: No weighting was used in this study. DATE OF DATA COLLECTION: 3 April 1995 – 13 April 1995. EXTENT OF DATA COLLECTION: 1 data file (SPSS Export) + machine-readable codebook and hardcopy documentation + questionnaire. Number of cases: Number of records: Number of records per case: Logical Record Length: Number of Variables: Number of Kilobytes: ASCII SPSS SPSS EXPORT PUBLICATIONS: 1) MarkData (survey agency), Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) 1995, Perceptions of Blacks on the 1996 Census: Fieldwork Report 508 508 1 80+ 630 41, 148KB 50, 292KB 63, 796KB
