Abstract
Description

This analysis offers insight into short-term household change in South Africa by examining the extent and correlates of residential and compositional change. Data from Waves 1 and 2 of the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) are used to measure the change in physical residence between the waves, categorising individuals as either ‘movers’ or ‘non-movers’. Compositional change is also measured, by sorting individuals into ‘changers’ or ‘non-changers,’ based on whether their household membership was the same in Waves 1 and 2.
