The South Africa Enterprise Survey is a study of the business environment in South Africa. The survey uses benchmarking and analytical tools to make the South African survey fully compatible with the approach that have been implementing since 2005/2006 in several regions of the world. The survey is being conducted in the Eastern and Western Cape, KwaZulu Natal and Gauteng provinces. Questions relating to how companies tackle the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic in South Africa are included.  The panel data set allows researchers to track changes in the business environment, to measure the effect of these changes on firm performance over time and to assess the effects of reforms on the business environment. Reports on the survey will be available from December 2020.
