The HSRC is working together with partners in the planning and implementation of the 6th national household survey funded by the the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (Cooperative Agreement #GH001629).

The survey is the sixth in a series of population-based, cross-sectional household survey conducted in South Africa designed to assess the level of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and related health indicators. This multi-stage cluster survey of up to 85 000 randomly selected households in South Africa will provide representative data for some of the 52 districts.

Social Attitudes Survey of South Africa (SASAS)

SASAS is a nationally representative, repeated cross-sectional survey that has been conducted annually by the HSRC since 2003.

SASAS thus represents a notable tool for monitoring evolving social, economic and political values among South Africans, but also demonstrates promising utility as an anticipatory, or predictive, mechanism that can inform decision- and policy-making processes. The series celebrated the successful completion of its 15th annual round in late 2017.
