South Africa 2015, and 2017 Added to LIS Database!

We are delighted to announce that two new datasets from South Africa, ZA15 (Wave X), and ZA17 (Wave X), have been added to the LIS Database.    
The datasets are from the the 4th and 5the Waves of the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS), carried out by the Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit (SALDRU), at the University of Cape Town.

In addition, LIS has carried out extensive revisions to the income section of the previously available versions of ZA08, ZA10, and ZA12, including: the simulation of taxes, social contributions and gross wages on the basis of annual tax rate tables, and the imputation of all missing income components using predictive mean matching or hot deck techniques.
