Abstract:Since the mid-1990s, there has been a marked resurgence of quantitative research in South Africa's social sciences, fuelled by the availability of new data, ready access to personal computers and more user-friendly statistical software, policymakers' requests for quantitative analysis, and scholars' reimmersion in global academic networks. This special issue of 'Social Dynamics' brings together a number of South African quantitative social science studies: The uneven development of quantitative social science in South Africa (Jeremy Seekings) - Causes and consequences of schooling outcomes in South Africa: evidence from survey data (Kermyt G. Anderson, Anne Case, David Lam) - No magic bullets, just tracer bullets: the role of learning resources, social advantage, and education management in improving the performance of South African schools (Luis Crouch and Thabo Mabogoane) - What have we learnt about unemployment from microdatasets in South Africa? (Geeta Kingdon and John Knight) - Panel data and policy analysis in South Africa: taking a long view (Julian May & Benjamin Roberts) - Are African workers getting ahead in the new South Africa? Evidence from KwaZulu-Natal, 1993-1998 (Paul L. Cichello, Gary S. Fields and Murray Leibbrandt) - Redistribution through the budget: public expenditure incidence in South Africa, 1993-1997 (Servaas van der Berg) - How do households work? Migration, the household and remittance behaviour in South Africa (Dorrit Posel).
