Class, Race, and Inequality in South Africa

This chapter examines patterns of inequality in South Africa following the end of the apartheid era. It analyzes the overall levels of inequality after apartheid using census data from the 1995 and 2000 Income and Expenditure Surveys (IESs) and the annual October Household Surveys (OHSs) conducted between 1994 and 1995. The census data suggest that overall levels of inequality changed little, but there has been a steady shift in the income shares of different racial groups. The declining interracial inequality and rising intraracial inequality are also evident.

Keywords:   inequality, apartheid, Income and Expenditure Surveys, South Africa, October Household Surveys, census data, interracial inequality, intraracial inequality
