This project draws on various data sources to track a set of of indicators that measure key dimensions of youth well-being in South Africa at local, provincial and national levels. The Western Cape province was the first pilot area, with indicators to measure and track youth well-being developed in collaboration with the provincial government and the City of Cape Town. Since then, data sources were since expanded to cover all the other provinces. 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. It is anticipated that the indicators will provide a strong evidence base to inform youth-related policies and interventions implemented at the local community, municipal, provincial and national levels.
