SAPRIN releases its second harmonised population dataset to track South Africans' health and wellbeing

4 June 2020

We are pleased to announce the release of our second harmonised population dataset.


The dataset contains information that has been harmonised from three health and demographic surveillance system (HDSS) nodes located in rural South Africa, namely: the SAMRC/Wits University Agincourt HDSS in the Bushbuckridge District of Mpumalanga, which has collected data since 1993; the University of Limpopo's DIMAMO HDSS in the Capricorn District of Limpopo, which has collected data since 1996; and the Africa Health Research Institute's HDSS in the uMkhanyakude District of KwaZulu-Natal, which has collected data since 2000.


The dataset is now available for download from the SAPRIN Data Repository
