The South African Development Index (SADI)

The South African Development Index (SADI) is an initiative by the South African Institute of Race Relations. The index aims to track development trends in the country. It assigns a score to the level of overall human and economic development in South Africa based on 27 indicators across six policy areas. The first release of this index was in February 2011. Thereafter, the index will be released on a quarterly basis. Government and private sector users are welcome to download and use the index to link to it.
