Overview of research project
In order to capture the nature and the impact of Covid-19 on South African society, the University of Johannesburg’s Centre for Social Change (CSC) and the Developmental, Capable and Ethical State (DCES) research division at the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) undertook an online cross-sectional survey, which was initiated on 13 April 2020 and fielded until the 14 May. The main aim of this UJ-HSRC Covid-19 Democracy Survey was to determine public perceptions of the economic, social and political impact of Covid-19 on life across the country. This research will continue with further rounds of data collection that correspond to changes in the level of restrictions.
