Since 1971 the HSRC has regularly monitored the income of university graduates. This is the fourteenth survey in the series. The sample was drawn from the HSRC Register of Graduates, the most comprehensive source of names and addresses of graduates residing in South Africa.

About the author
Joan Roodt is a senior researcher in the Employment and Economic Policy Research Programme within the HSRC, which focuses on the crucial areas of employment creation and the development of South Africas human resources. Its priority is to support the governments HRD strategy from the demand side by providing data on the demand for labour in South Africa and to analyse the impact on job creation of such factors as national and sectoral policies, globalisation and technological change, and the increasing demand for skilled as opposed to cheap workers. Other research priority areas include the special human resources needs of the informal sector and of small, medium and micro-enterprises.
