Summary

Detail

As of July 2012, Moody's Analytics Data Buffet offers an expanded subnational South Africa database, sourced from Statistics South Africa (Stats SA). It is part of the Moody's Analytics Global Database product. Please contact your sales representative for details.

Economic sector coverage includes demographics, income, labor and wages, national accounts, CPI, and real estate. Frequency and geo coverage varies with indicator; certain data are available as often as monthly with geographic granularity to the local municipality. For full detail, please see related articles in Data Buffet News or attached to time series via Mnemonic 411 (when available), or browse the catalog.

Known officially as the Republic of South Africa, the time zone is UTC+2, tre are eleven official languages including English, and the national currency is the rand (ISO 4217: ZAR). It uses the Standard Industrial Classification Coding System (SIC). The Data Buffet national geo code is .IZAF.

Table 1. Summary of economic indicators. Available indicator-classes have frequencies of annual, quarterly or monthly (A,Q, M). Geographic levels are described in Table 2. For completeness, the table shows when indicator-classes are available at the national level (NL). Also, additional history for the LFS and employment by industry are available semiannually until 2007.

Table 2. Geographic levels in our subnational dataset. The geography code patterns will help you create wild card basket retrievals. For example, to retrieve population for all provinces, use VSQPOPUA.IZAF_^^.

There is only one basket wild card for single characters, the caret (^), but patterns of "a" and "n" indicate those geo codes use letters and digits.
