This chapter uses the 1993 Project for Statistics on Living Standards and Development (PSLSD) survey to analyse the pattern of income inequality at the end of apartheid and on the eve of democratisation. The survey shows that the mean incomes of the richest households were one hundred times greater than the incomes of the poorest households. The chapter also describes different ways of estimating the relative contribution to inequality of interracial and intraracial inequality.

Keywords:   Project for Statistics on Living Standards and Development, PSLSD, income inequality, apartheid, democratisation, interracial inequality, intraracial inequality
