Remuneration of Graduates as at 1 July 1994. Main Report = Vergoeding van gegradueerdes soos op 1 Julie 1994. Hoofverslag.
In September 1994, South Africa's Human Sciences Research Council mailed 215,284 questionnaires to graduates to ascertain their occupational income as of July 1, 1994. The 39,495 questionnaires returned represented a response rate of 18.3%. Thirteen percent (5,138) of the respondents received no income. Of the economically active respondents, 40% were employed in the public sector and earned a median income package worth 90300 Rand (R90300). The median income package of the 39% of respondents employed in the private sector equaled R117100, whereas that of the 21% of respondents who were self-employed equaled R143600. Individuals employed in the public sector usually had more working experience than their counterparts in the private sector, and self-employed people generally had more experience and worked longer hours than either public sector or private sector employees. (This detailed survey report includes 13 tables/figures detailing the responding graduates' remuneration by the following: occupation; employment in the public and private sectors versus self-employment; geographical area; post level; years of work experience; working hours; economic sector; gender; population group; and qualification. Appended is a list of occupational groups. An alphabetical index of occupations is included. Side-by-side English and Afrikaans versions of the document are provided .) (MN)
