The Gauteng City-Region Observatory (GCRO) invites you to the virtual launch of our 6th Quality of Life Survey 2020/21.  

These results provide new insight into the overall wellbeing and quality of life of residents of Gauteng in late 2020 and early 2021. The findings cover a range of components shaping overall quality of life, including the direct impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic and psychosocial conditions, socio-political attitudes and beliefs, and satisfaction with government.

The GCRO has run the Quality of Life Survey every two years since 2009, generating rich data that has informed policy, decision-making, and contributed to numerous academic publications. With a focus on quality of life and well-being, the survey has always been a profoundly human project.

The theme of our launch is the Human side of the Data. Our respondents generously shared their time, their thoughts, beliefs and insights, during a profoundly traumatic time. They have entrusted us with deeply personal information, to support efforts to improve the lives of people throughout the province. We invite you to join us as we share what we have heard.

The results of the 2020/21 survey will be launched by the Premier of Gauteng the Honourable David Makhura.

Please note that the launch event will be followed by a media briefing with the research team.

The event will be an online webinar and will be recorded. There will also be a livestream to YouTube.

A limited number of data vouchers are available on request for those who would otherwise not be able to attend. Please be in touch via info@gcro.ac.za.
