The Centre For Risk Analysis (CRA) helps business and government leaders plan for a future South Africa and identify policies that will create a more prosperous society.

The CRA provides its clients with strategic intelligence and scenario planning services to help them navigate South Africa's economic, social, policy and political landscape.

The CRA uses in-person briefings, reports, videos and podcasts to provide in-depth analysis on domestic and international trends affecting its clients.

Socio-Economic Survey

The Socio Economic Survey is published annually providing primary data on South Africa’s economy, government finances, living standards, healthcare, crime, education, and demographics. At over 900 pages there is no more complete statistical reference guide to the trends that will shape a future South Africa and this makes the Survey an essential resource for any firm with interests in South Africa. The Survey is published in hard copy and online in PDF and Excel.
