The Indlulamithi Barometer is part of the Indlulamithi South Africa Scenarios 2030 project, which aims to galvanise national conversations around the question.

What will it take to create a socially cohesive South Africa?

Tracking South Africa’s progress

The Indlulamithi 2030 scenarios are not a once-off exercise. Each year, we track how the scenarios are unfolding in real-time at both national and provincial level.

Using the Social Cohesion Barometer, developed in partnership with Social Surveys Africa, we monitor shifts in South Africa’s future trajectory towards or away from each of the three scenarios.

How the barometer works

The national and provincial barometer uses 53 indicators, compiled from published datasets and organised into three key driving forces, to measure the extent to which the different scenarios are materialising over time. The barometer was launched by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng in 2019 and continues to be updated annually on Indlulamithi Day (21 June) to account for recent events and trends.
