South African Graduate Statistics, 1999: Profiles and Recent Trends. Labour Market Analysis.
Shapiro, Yvonne, Comp.; Jacobs, Johan, Comp.
This Register of Graduates was compiled by the Human Science Research Council (Pretoria, South Africa) and offers statistical data on college graduates in South Africa for 1999. This information on graduate availability is used by employers to prepare and implement employment equity plans, as required by the Employment Equity Act, No. 55 of 1998. The base information on the graduates was obtained electronically from each South African university. A questionnaire was then sent to each graduate requesting further information on occupation, address, and other issues. Graduate qualifications were sorted into 48 categories (e.g., fields of study). Each degree and postgraduate diploma, as well as each major field of study (980 total) was allocated to a category. Each graduate is shown in all the categories in which he or she has qualifications. A double page of data for each category lists qualification trends by level, qualification trends by population group and gender, qualification trends by current province of residence, and total availability information, by region, and by race and gender.
