Aim Statistics South Africa aims to provide timely, accurate and accessible official statistics to inform economic growth, development and democratic governance in South Africa through a National Statistics System.
Key objectives and programmes The legal mandate of Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) is to provide data on aspects of South African society to inform organs of state, and other users of data, in their activities. In addition, Stats SA aims: · To promote coordination among producers of statistics in South Africa to improve the quality and consistency of official statistics and to avoid unnecessary duplication · To provide statistical data and advice to Government · To liase with the statistical agencies of other countries Stats SA approaches its work through two broad strategic thrusts: the development of a National Statistics System (NSS) and a `quality through people' organisational philosophy. Through the National Statistics System, Stats SA aims to promote evidence based policy-making, monitoring and evaluation in Government by establishing quality standards for official statistics, coordinating the production and communication of official statistics, and promoting statistical literacy. Organisationally, Stats SA aims to establish a quality and methodology unit and promote the skills of its staff and their use of technology in statistical processes. These objectives will be operationalised through Stats SA's four programmes: · Administration manages the organisation and develops staff skills. · Statistical Services produces a variety of high quality statistical series and reports. · Population Census manages the production and quality of the national census. · Auxiliary and Associated Services funds the Statistics Council.
Strategic overview and key policy developments: 1998/99 ­ 2004/05 From 1998/99 to 2000/01, Stats SA has been developing a set of social statistics. Social and population statistics projects such as the annual October Household Survey and the Population Census have been run to provide Government with critical data for planning and monitoring socioeconomic development. A Labour Force Survey was introduced in 2000 to track poverty and labour market dynamics. Stats SA has also emphasised improving the work processes, methodologies and technologies for generating key economic statistics. Processes to ensure the compliance of statistical series with the
269
2002 Estimates of National Expenditure International Monetary Fund's standards have been developed. Similarly, the gross domestic product (GDP) series was revised and brought into line with the United Nation's standards. Partnerships with other departments have increased. Collaborative activities range from constructing a national spatial database with the Department of Land Affairs and the Independent Electoral Commission, to conducting a Victims of Crime survey for the Secretariat of Safety and Security, and completing two agricultural surveys for the Department of Agriculture. The establishment of the National Statistics System is a response to Government's growing need for integrated information and to the obligations imposed by the Statistics Act (6 of 1999). The purpose of the NSS is to enhance the capacity to formulate and evaluate policy decisions. This will be achieved by creating a network of state institutions to improve the quality of statistics, enhance the comparability of statistics, and minimise duplication in the collection and publication of statistics. The NSS will facilitate collaboration over specific series of statistics and the formulation and application of appropriate quality criteria and methodologies. This means that Stats SA will pursue its organisational goals and activities as part of a wider group of public sector agencies. The second major strategic thrust for Stats SA is the `quality through people' organisational philosophy that aims to ensure that the quality of statistics is not only sustained, but improved. This can only be achieved by investment in developing people, to create a cadre of professionals attuned to both the information needs of users and the technical imperatives required to meet those needs. The current organisational structure of Stats SA was not designed to deliver an NSS or high quality statistics to meet user needs. Furthermore, with the upgrading of Stats SA to a Schedule 1 department, it is necessary to revise and upgrade the management structure. This will be completed shortly to ensure that the new organisational structure is in place by the beginning of 2002/03. Budgetary and labour market constraints mean that the complete staffing of the new structure will be phased in over two or three years.

Expenditure trends Changes in Stats SA's expenditure, as well as the number and cost of personnel, are driven by the five-year population census cycle, with expenditure in enumeration years higher than in others. For this reason spending on Population Census as a proportion of the budget varies from 4,5 per cent in 1999/00 to an expected 80,2 per cent in 2001/02, after which it declines. Excluding spending on Population Census, personnel is the biggest cost to Stats SA and consumes an average of 73,2 per cent of spending over the medium term. The increase in personnel numbers in Statistical Services is due to the filling of vacancies. The original allocation of R348,4 million for the census proved to be insufficient after the results of the pilot census suggested the need to change certain procedures during the enumeration stage in order to assure adequate quality control. These changes implied additional costs and additional funds totalling R286,8 million were provided in the adjusted estimate. This included an additional appropriation of R140,0 million as well as rollovers of R146,8 million from savings on the 2000/01 budget. Other changes to the 2001 Budget Estimate for 2002/03 and 2003/04 were allocated to create capacity for the National Statistics System and to allow for the appointment of senior managers.
Departmental receipts Departmental receipts include interest earned, commissions received on insurance premiums deducted from employees' salaries, and the recovery of bursary debts. Subsequent to 1999/00, all income related to the sale of Stats SA's products are paid into the Marketing and Dissemination Trading Account.

Policy developments In the past, Administration activities were directed towards the strategic objectives of providing support to an increasing number of surveys, establishing management systems, and ensuring compliance with the Public Finance Management Act (1 of 1999) (PFMA), and regulations for the public service. Priorities for the medium term, however, are human resource development, the enhancement of management and financial systems, and the development of the National Statistic System. In pursuing its goal of `quality through people', Stats SA has prioritised the training and empowerment of staff to ensure that South Africa has an abundant and representative stock of statistical professionals in the future.
Expenditure trends Administration expenditure increases to an average of 32,1 per cent of Stats SA's total budget, excluding the Population Census subprogramme, over the medium term. The average share of the budget, also excluding the Population Census subprogramme, for the period 1998/99 to 2000/01, was 26,8 per cent per year. The 2001/02 increase relates mainly to the implementation of the Public Finance Management Act, the appointment of a Statistician-General, and the funding for capacity-building. Provision has also been made for additional strategic management capacity in line with the restructuring of Stats SA.
Programme 2: Statistical Services The objective of Statistical Services is to produce and analyse high quality social, economic and population statistics to inform socio-economic planning and development in South Africa. These statistical series include prices and labour, estimates of GDP and the other national accounts, and public finance statistics. In addition, a variety of demographic surveys are conducted, while the Provincial Offices subprogramme provides a fieldwork service and an information service to provincial and local governments and other users at provincial level.

Policy developments Over the medium term, Stats SA is focusing on improving the quality of South Africa's official statistics. This will be achieved through a quality unit that will guide the establishment of common standards, classifications and methodologies; conduct periodic quality `audits'; and develop improved sampling frames and collection techniques. Stats SA is also focusing on the enhanced use of technology and quality management systems. Additional capacity is to be created to deal with additional statistical analyses required by Government, such as for poverty and HIV/Aids. Social statistics are largely collected through household surveys. A master sample was introduced in 2000 to improve the quality of data collections. Quality improvements are also being generated through the gradual roll-out of regional offices to support a permanent field team. The new Business Register will provide the sampling frame for all economic series. Entries on the register are presently being reclassified to ensure their accuracy and representivity. Geo-coding of
274
Vote 13: Statistics South Africa
business units on the register will facilitate the presentation of economic data on maps at different geographic levels. The electronic dissemination of statistics, particularly through the website, is receiving attention.
Expenditure trends The increased demand for data by Government has meant that more resources have been channelled into Statistical Services, the budget of which will grow by an annual average of 13,1 per cent over the medium term. The Economic Statistics, and Household Surveys and Vital Statistics subprogrammes still account for the largest share of spending within Statistical Services. Provision for Demographic Statistics has been included under Population Census from 2000/01, as their activities are closely related.

In September 2000, the Labour Force Survey became South Africa's official employment indicator. The data from this survey were released for the use of independent researchers. In addition, the first Social Development Indicators Survey collected baseline data for the 13 nodes targeted by the Integrated Sustainable rural development Programme. A report entitled `South Africa in Transition', published in October 2001, analysed changes in the living conditions of South Africans between 1995 and 1999, and the Human Development Indices for 1980, 1991, and 1996 were published based on census data from the relevant years.
275
2002 Estimates of National Expenditure The first report on time use statistics, describing the manner in which South Africans spend their time on productive and non-productive activities, was released in August 2001.
Programme 3: Population Census The objective of Population Census is to compile and process data collected during the 2001 population census. This will provide Government and other statistics users with comprehensive information on the people of South Africa. The programme has five subprogrammes: · Planning and Operations funds, coordinates and monitors planning and implementation. · GIS and Mapping provides geographic information Systems for all census-related work. · Dissemination develops statistical products to meet the various needs of users. · Processing captures data from questionnaires and prepares data for analysis. · Administration manages the financial, human and material resources of the census.

Policy developments Results from the 2001 Census will be released within 18 months of enumeration in a range of products, including the easy-to-use `Census In Brief' that will be distributed to schools, community organisations and the general public. Users requiring detailed information will be able to access the census database. Planning for Census 2006 will begin in 2002. Proper planning is critical to a successful census and to this end a core census team is being created.
Expenditure trends Population Census has a five-year cycle in which the spending is at its lowest in the first and fifth years, and at its highest in the third. Census 1996 came to an end in 1998/99. Changes to the 2001 Budget Estimates reflect the additional funding for Census 2001 that was required for improving supervision in the field and enhancing Project Management. Due to the five-year cycle, and the fact that enumeration took place in 2001, not all subprogrammes are active over the medium term.

The highlight of 2001/02 was the implementation of the enumeration and processing phases of Census 2001. About 80 000 census-takers collected data, processing began in November 2001, and is due to be completed by October 2002. Census 2001 will provide accurate small-area statistical information, and results will be available by April 2003. A report on the Youth of South Africa, based on the analysis of Census 1996 data, was published in November 2001.
Programme 4: Auxiliary and Associated Services The Auxiliary and Associated Service programme's key objectives are to fund the operations of the Statistics Council, established in terms of the Statistics Act, and to transfer funds to the Marketing and Dissemination Trading Account. The Statistics Council is empowered to advise the Minister, the Statistician-General and other organs of state.

Policy developments The Statistics Council is made up of representatives of academia, business, non-governmental organisations and national and provincial departments. The Council will play an increasing role in the National Statistics System as it develops, necessitating the Council's conducting research, as well engaging in a variety of consultative processes. The trading account, operated from 2000/01 to finance the marketing and dissemination costs of the Stats SA's statistical products, is expected to generate increased revenue after the release of the Census 2001 results. While only a small number of high level products will attract a charge, proceeds will be utilised to promote the use of census information for planning purposes by both public and private sector organisations.
Expenditure trends Expenditure on this programme is dominated by the activities of the Statistics Council. Expenditure increased dramatically in 2001/02 since its mandate and activities have expanded in line with the role it plays in the NSS. Provision for the Statistics Council continues to grow at an average annual rate of 13,3 per cent over the medium term. A nominal amount of R1 000 is provided for the Marketing and Dissemination Trading Account.

Three subcommittees were set up for Labour, Economic and Census 2001, respectively. The Labour and Economic committees have given advice on the quality of, and methodological issues relating to, labour and economic statistics. The Census 2001 Committee monitored Census 2001 and will advise Stats SA and the Minister on the acceptability of the census results.
Trading Accounts
Marketing and Dissemination Trading Account The Marketing and Dissemination Trading Account has operated from 2000/01 to finance the marketing and dissemination costs of the Stats SA's statistical products and is used to inform potential users about available data.
It is expected that most income will be generated in the financial year during which the census data become available ­ hence the rise in anticipated revenue in 2003/04.
