Investment survey for the Office of the PresidentStrategy & Tactics has been commissioned by the Office of the President to help design, implement and analyse a survey of 1100 Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) around the country. The sample is drawn from a massive data-set of established SMMEs, which itself had to be crafted from various sources. The sample will focus on three major metropolitan centres and six peri-urban towns.
The focus of the study - which has a parallel survey of large enterprises - is on factors that help and hinder investment. S&T has sub-contracted Citizen Surveys, our frequent fieldwork partner, to apply the questionnaires and code and capture the data. S&T will undertake initial analysis, focusing on attitudinal and socio-political issues; the Office of the President will manage an intensive process of analysing the data by a team of economists.
