Public opinion on National Priority Issues March 2000 reports on the shades of public opinion about the quality of governance exercised in South Africa, satisfaction with service delivery, perceived national priorities, political preferences and the economy as captured during the national survey of public opinion conducted in November 1999.

Respondents were also asked for their opinions on race relations, the fight against crime and the extent to which they trust various national institutions such as labour unions, the courts, the police and the media. The views thus reflect the public mood just five months after the re-election by a wide margin, of the incumbent national government.

Public opinion at this juncture can be used as a barometer of the needs and priorities of the electorate and will be of value to all individuals and organisations that are involved in the public domain.
