Development trends in SA improving
30 September 2011
The South African Institute of Race Relations’ latest Development Index shows that development trends in the country continue to improve.
A major contributor to the latest rise in the index came as a result of crime data, which showed a decrease in the levels of murders and other serious crimes.
Health indicators, such as life expectancy and child mortality, also improved.
The Institute mentions the rise in South Africa’s unemployment rates as the greatest disappointment.
