Readers' feedback

To the best of my knowledge, the South African Child Gauge is the only publication in South Africa that combines detailed empirical data presented in a user-friendly and accessible format, with insightful and thought-provoking research and commentary in the sphere of children’s rights.

Single best source that I am aware of on the subject area.

It's an excellent, current overview of the primary concerns for children in South Africa.

It makes me realise that as government we still have a lot to do.

I think they are excellent. They give a very short coverage, and I like the fact that they explain the data tables and come up with some sort of conclusion.

It is able to give us alternative picture of issues facing children in South Africa, government statistics are sometimes not an honest picture of enormity of the problems facing this country.
