As an input into the analysis contained in the Ten Year Review, the South African government commissioned a series of background research papers from a variety of research agencies and individuals. A selection of these documents have now been released for public review, through the website of the Population and Development chief directorate of the Department of Social Development. They have been published in the form submitted to the government.

SARPN has been given permission by Jacques van Zuydam, chief director of the directorate, to post these documents in a PDF format directly on the SARPN website.

Readers should note that a number of these reports are very lengthy and/or contain a large number of tables: their downloading time will thus be slow, especially if the website is accessed at peak times during the day.
