It's Endangered Data Week<endangereddataweek.org>! South African institutions can play a role by highlighting data at risk and working to rescue such data!

Check out the historical datasets from data rescue projects of DataFirst on our Open data platform at https://www.datafirst.uct.ac.za/dataportal/index.php/catalog/central/about

Two famous survey datasets are now published for researchers:

The Keiskammahoek Rural Survey of Eastern Cape villages 1948-1949 after displacement under the government's "Betterment" policy https://www.datafirst.uct.ac.za/dataportal/index.php/catalog/563

The Surplus People's Project survey in 1980-1981 of families forcibly removed under the Group Areas racial legislation
