Annual consumer inflation softened to 4,4% in April 2019 after hitting a three-month high of 4,5% in March 2019. While food inflation remains quite stable, rising petrol prices continue to place pressure on consumers.

Inflation has remained within the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) target range of 3–6% for two years (since March 2017).

data1

The fuel price index saw a rise of 7,6% in April from March, on the back of a hefty price hike. The 7,6% rise is the biggest monthly jump in fuel prices since April 2015 when the fuel index climbed by 14,3%.

The price of inland 95-octane petrol increased by R1,31 per litre in April 2019 and diesel (wholesale) by 82c.1 Revised fuel and Road Accident Fund (RAF) levies also came into effect in April, contributing to these increases.

All eyes will be on fuel prices in June when government is expected to implement the carbon tax.

Annual food inflation in April continued to be moderate at 2,3%. However, several foods had higher inflation than the overall food rate: vegetables (10,1%); fruit (6,4%); bread and cereals (6,1%); fish (4,9%); and sugar, sweets & desserts (5,2%).

Meat prices continued their downward trend, registering an overall annual decline of 1,2% in April. Stewing beef was 5,4% cheaper than a year ago. The average price of beef steak has fallen by 4,8% (click on the image to enlarge).

data2

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages have seen strong price increases over the past 12 months. Cold beverage prices have increased by 9,4% since April 2018. Wine prices climbed by 7,9% over the same period.

The Extent of Food Security in South Africa - ◆合乐娱乐◆ //www.pbi8z.com.cn/?p=12135 //www.pbi8z.com.cn/?p=12135#respond Thu, 16 May 2019 08:34:02 +0000 //www.pbi8z.com.cn/?p=12135 read more »

Did you know that in 2017, 6,8 million South Africans experienced hunger? While the number has dropped from 13,5 million in 2002, it still affects 1,7 million households across the country. These figures were released in a recent survey, “Towards measuring the extent of food security in South Africa: An examination of hunger and food inadequacy”, published by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA).

Datastory

Whilst South Africa is food secure at national level, the country is still food insecure at household level as not all households have access to adequate food. Almost 20% of South African households had inadequate or severe inadequate access to food in 2017. This varied by province, population group of household head and by household size.

According to Oxfam, food security occurs when all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to meet their dietary needs for an active and healthy lifestyle. Food insecurity occurs when people’s access to food is minimally adequate and they have trouble meeting their basic needs, while severe inadequate access to food occurs when there is a critical lack of access to food.1

Limpopo (93,6%) and Gauteng (84,0%) had the highest proportion of households that reported adequate food access whilst North West (64,0%) and Northern Cape (66,5%) provinces had the lowest proportions of households that had adequate food access and therefore can be seen as the least food secure.

Households headed by black Africans and coloureds were less likely to have adequate access to food compared to households headed by Indians/Asians and whites. In addition, households with larger household sizes were more likely to have inadequate or severe inadequate access to food compared to those with smaller household sizes. Almost two-thirds of the households that were vulnerable to hunger resided in urban areas.

Food inadequacy and hunger are still a challenge. Poverty-stricken households lack money to buy food and are unable to produce their own food. These households are constrained by the inability to secure employment or to generate income. Poor households are also typically characterised by few income-earners and many dependents, and are particularly vulnerable to economic shocks.

Severe inadequate access to food is mostly found among households with more than eight household members. According to the report, just under a third (29,6%) of households that comprised more than three children reported that food access was inadequate. This proportion is almost twice the national average. Households with no children or fewer children were more likely to have adequate access to food than those with many children.

Child hunger was still a challenge in South Africa. More than half a million households with children aged five years or younger experienced hunger in 2017. Northern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal had the highest proportion of households that experienced hunger. According to the report, more than half of households with young children that experienced hunger were in urban areas.

The involvement of households in agricultural activities for subsistence farming can play an important role in reducing the vulnerability to hunger of rural and urban food-insecure households. The results show that out of 16,2 million households, about 2,5 million households (15,6%) were involved in agricultural activities in South Africa in 2017. Provinces that are predominantly rural and with high levels of poverty such as Limpopo (25%), Eastern Cape (20%) and KwaZulu-Natal (20%) had the highest proportions of households that relied on agricultural activities to supply their own food. Most households involved in agricultural activities were involved in the production of fruits and vegetables, grain and other food crops, as well as in livestock and poultry farming. Although the main source of income for these households was social grants, most households involved in agricultural activities indicated that the main reason for their involvement is to supplement food for the household.

While food inadequacy and hunger remain a challenge, South Africa has made significant progress towards reducing the number of South Africans and the proportion of households who experienced hunger in 2002.

On 8 May 2019, millions of South Africans braved the cold and wet weather and headed to the polls to cast their votes in the country’s sixth democratic elections. The excitement across the country was so tangible that President Cyril Ramaphosa said the 2019 elections were reminiscent of the country’s first democratic elections in 1994. He hoped the outcome of the elections would be in line with what the people wish – to see a country that is working. The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) declared the 2019 national and provincial elections free and fair. Being the sixth democratic elections, this declaration shows how far South Africa’s democracy has matured over the years. However, the low voter turnout from the youth remains a concern. The youth of South Africa should take interest in such national matters as they have the power to make a difference and make their voice heard.

In this month’s issue of Mbalo Brief, our educational article is based on Assessing social disparities in accessing travel time and travel costs to educational institutions and workplaces. Also included in this issue is our monthly crossword puzzle and solutions for the April puzzle.

Youth graduate unemployment rate increases in Q1: 2019 - ◆合乐娱乐◆ //www.pbi8z.com.cn/?p=12121 //www.pbi8z.com.cn/?p=12121#respond Wed, 15 May 2019 07:35:22 +0000 //www.pbi8z.com.cn/?p=12121 read more »

The youth aged 15–24 years are the most vulnerable in the South African labour market as the unemployment rate among this age group was 55,2% in the 1st quarter of 2019. Among graduates in this age group, the unemployment rate was 31,0% during this period compared to 19,5% in the 4th quarter of 2018 – an increase of 11,4 percentage points quarter-on-quarter. However, the graduate unemployment rate is still lower than the rate among those with other educational levels, meaning that education is still the key to these young people’s prospects improving in the South African labour market.

 

Youthdatastorygraph

According to the latest Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS) results released by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA), a decline in employment (down by 237?000) and an increase in unemployment (up by 62?000) in the 1st quarter of 2019, compared to the 4th quarter of 2018, led to a decline in the labour force participation rate, which is now standing at 59,3%. Unemployment in the first quarter of 2019 increased by 0,5 of a percentage point, bringing the rate to 27,6%.

The burden of unemployment is concentrated amongst the youth (aged 15–34 years) as they account for 63,4% of the total number of unemployed persons. Almost 4 in every 10 young people in the labour force did not have a job, with the unemployment rate within this group at 39,6% in the 1st quarter of 2019. Just under 30% of the youth have jobs and about half of them (48,8%) participate in the labour market. The unemployment rate among adults (aged 35–64 years) was 18,0% during this period, while the employment-to-population ratio and labour force participation rate were 57,4% and 70,0%, respectively, for this group.

The historical data shows that compared to the 4th quarter of every year, unemployment among youth increases in the 1st quarter of every year. This is mainly due to new entrants into the labour market. The majority (85,7%) of the young unemployed graduates aged 15–24 years were new entrants into the labour market in the 1st quarter of 2019, while the rest have either lost their previous jobs, left their previous jobs or were re-entrants into the labour market.

The unemployed are often targeted by unscrupulous persons who claim to be able to secure employment for them for some form of payment. It has come to our attention that false information is making the rounds on social media platforms about employment opportunities at Statistics South Africa.

Stats SA wishes to caution the public about imposters claiming to represent the organisation and falsely promising jobs, and asking for prepayment to secure jobs for applicants.

Stats SA wishes to officially state that no vacancies are currently advertised and no agency or middleman represents the organisation for the purposes of recruitment.

Employment opportunities at Statistics South Africa are advertised on Stats SA’s official website, in Sunday newspapers and in the circular of the Department of Public Service and Administration. Information on vacancies is also posted on our official social media platforms.

The public is cautioned that government departments will never ask for payment for recruitment processes.

Where cases of this nature come to light, the victims should lodge a complaint with the relevant authorities.

The public is requested to check Stats SA’s official platforms to keep informed of job opportunities at the organisation.

?????????????????? Quarterly Labour Force Survey – QLFS Q1:2019

?The results of the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS) for the first quarter of 2019 released by Statistics South Africa, indicate that the official unemployment rate increased by 0,5 of a percentage point to 27,6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.? The increase in the unemployment rate is a result of a decline of 237?000 in the number of people in employment and an increase of 62 000 in the number of people who were unemployed between the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019.

The South African working-age population increased by 149?000 in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. The labour force decreased by 176?000. The results further indicate that the number of discouraged work-seekers increased by (156?000) and the other not economically active population by 169 000 resulting in the net increase of 325?000 in the number of those who were not economically active.

A decline in employment was observed in all sectors (Formal sector, Informal sector, Agriculture and Private households) in the first quarter of 2019, compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. The net loss of 237?000 in the number of people in employment was mainly driven by Construction (142?000), followed by Finance (94?000), Community and social services (50?000), Private households (31?000), Mining (20?000) and Agriculture (12?000). Employment gains were recorded in Transport (59?000), Trade (25?000), Utilities (16?000) and Manufacturing (14?000).

There were approximately 10,3 million persons aged 15–24 years in the first quarter of 2019. Between the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019, the percentage of young persons aged 15–24 years who were not in employment, education or training (NEET) increased by 2,1 percentage points to 33,2% (3,4 million). Of the 20,3 million young people aged 15-34 years, 40,7% were not in employment, education or training (NEET) – an increase by 1,8 percentage points compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.

Freedom Day is a public holiday in South Africa celebrated on 27 April each year. On this day in 1994, South Africa had the first national and non-racial elections where South African citizens of voting age of over 18 years from any race group were allowed to vote. Previously, under the apartheid government, non-whites in general had only limited rights to vote while indigenous black South Africans had no voting rights. Freedom Day also commemorates the heroes and heroines who fought against colonialism and apartheid, many of which served years in prison during the liberation movement. After 25 years since South Africa had its first national and free elections, South Africans will once again cast their votes on 8 May 2019. Eligible voters can go to a local voting station at which they are registered in order to make their mark on the national and provincial ballot papers. For those who will be out of town on election day, they can visit any voting station, however, they will only be allowed to make their mark on the national ballot paper and not the provincial one. The President of South Africa, Cyril
Ramaphosa declared 8 May 2019 as a public holiday and encourages citizens to use the day to exercise their right to vote. In this month’s issue of Mbalo Brief, our educational article is based on Higher education and skills in South Africa, with a focus on individuals aged 18–24, their attendance of educational institutions, participation in postschool education and higher education attainment. Also have a look at our
monthly crossword and solutions for the March 2019 puzzle. Articles published in this issue are based on results of industry surveys

The Living Conditions Survey (LCS) is part of Stats SA’s household survey programme and provides detailed information on households’ living circumstances, as well as their income and expenditure patterns. Information from this survey was used to compile the report Men, Women and Children: Findings of the Living Conditions Survey 2014/15. Let’s take a look at some of the findings outlined in the report.

  1. Approximately half (49,2%) of the adult population were living below the upper-bound poverty line (UBPL).

According to the LCS 2014/15, there were 35,1 million adults (aged 18 years and older) in South Africa in 2015. When looking at the poverty headcount by sex using the UBPL, adult males and females experienced a headcount of 46,1% and 52,0%, respectively. Adult females experienced higher levels of poverty when compared to their male counterparts, regardless of the poverty line used.

  1. Gauteng and the Western Cape had the lowest proportion of adults living in poverty (UBPL).

The provinces with the highest headcount of adult poverty are Limpopo (67,5%), Eastern Cape (67,3%), KwaZulu-Natal (60,7%) and North West (59,6%). For these four provinces, significantly more than half of their population were living in poverty. Gauteng and Western Cape had the lowest proportion of adults living in poverty at 29,3% and 33,2%, respectively.

data1

3. Female-headed households mostly felt the experience of poverty.

According to the LCS 2014/15, approximately 40,0% of South Africans were living below the UBPL. The poverty gap (the distance away from the poverty line) and severity of poverty measures were larger for female-headed households compared to households headed by males. The proportion of females living below the UBPL was 16,9 percentage points more than that of households headed by males (49,9% versus 33,0%). Almost six out of every ten households headed by males (59,3%) compared to over seven out of every ten households headed by females (74,8%) in traditional areas were living under the UBPL.

4. Poor children were twice as likely to have no access to safe play areas.

Having a safe play area is fundamental for the healthy development and growth of a child. At the UBPL, more than half of non-poor children (53,7%) lived in neighbourhoods with safe play areas compared to just a quarter of poor children (25,7%)

5. Poor households headed by females had better access to housing and electricity, but not to water, sanitation and refuse removal services.

About 91,4% of poor male-headed households were connected to electricity compared to 95,2% of poor female-headed households. For poor female-headed households, 69,6% had full access to water compared to 71,7% of poor male-headed households.
