This report is one of a number of inputs into a broader selection process to determine the optimal set of indicators for the South African con-text. The selection of indicators in use within any labour market reflects the local policy priorities where the indicators will be applied. The focus of this study was, therefore, to consider the indicator systems as the primary point of attention rather than how comparable the parent country is with South Africa. In other words, indicator systems were identified in order to highlight an approach or particular policy focus rather than considering economically and contextually comparable countries and what their labour market indicators look like. In this way, the results were not restricted by a preconceived notion of what is possible in South Africa, but rather present a number of potential systems and the rules that underlie them. This input will then be considered in conjunction with other inputs and considerations to define the optimal system that can reasonably be implemented within the South African context.
