2009 SA Reconciliation Barometer Report released!

Posted on December 9, 2009. Filed under: Events |

The IJR’s 2009 SA Reconciliation Barometer (SARB) report was released in Cape Town this morning!

Recent rounds of the SARB have shown declining confidence in public institutions, political leadership and government performance.

In 2009, in the months before the April elections, this decline stabilised somewhat: while confidence levels remain low, this is an opportune moment for addressing the causes behind this decline, and beginning to rebuild public confidence.

Surely this report is meaningless without knowing what the racial split of responses was?

Thanks for your comment!

The report does give some breakdowns according to historically defined population groups – you will also see this in the previous reports, if you follow the Barometer Surveys link at the top of the page.

But in the last few rounds of the survey, we have increasingly found fewer difference in response according to race – and where there are differences, the data trends often still follow the same patterns, as is the case in the declines we saw from 2006-2008.

Yes – all of the Barometer reports including tables are freely available to the public.

We also provided the tables to the media at our press launch on Wednesday
– as you may have seen, we have received quite a lot of press coverage, though I haven’t seen any of the tables reproduced so far…

Haha as a researcher myself I’m all too used to the media not bothering with the detail of the tables…

Where can I find them? I had a look around the blog but didn’t spot any tables.

You can have a look at all of the tables by following the link to the report in the main post – not all of the data from the survey is included, but we will continue to publish other results and put them up on the blog.

So, watch this space!
