South African Cultural Observatory

Data

The SA Culutral Observatory's collection of measuring statistics for the social, economic and cultural dimensions is guided by the UNESCO Framework for Cultural Statistics (2009).  Through this and other data collection methods, the SACO seeks to produce a single local set of measures that will be internationally comparable and defined. The UNESCO FSC is a detailed tool for organising, measuring and classification of cultural statistics.
