This project draws on a number of data sources to develop a dashboard of local-level indicators that measure key dimensions of youth well-being in South Africa. The Western Cape was the pilot area, whereafter data for the other provinces, down to municipal level, were added. The aim is to contribute new knowledge and insight about how young people in the country are experiencing life by offering a tool for assessing their individual outcomes and environmental influences at a small area level and over time. Ultimately, it is anticipated that the indicators will provide a strong evidence base to inform youth-related policies and interventions implemented at the sub-municipal or local community level.
