The results of the comprehensive benchmarking and rebasing of South Africa’s national accounts statistics, jointly undertaken by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) and the South African Reserve Bank (SARB), were published by Stats SA on 25 August 2021 and have been incorporated in this edition of the Quarterly Bulletin. This Quarterly Bulletin and the SARB website include the revised statistics from the first quarter of 1993 to the second quarter of 2021 for most of the time
series. As indicated in the SARB media release of 26 August 2021, the revised statistics from 1946 to the fourth quarter of 1992 will be available on the SARB website on 15 December 2021 with the release of the December 2021 edition of the Quarterly Bulletin, following the backward linking of the timeseries. In addition, a dedicated supplement containing all the revised statistics as well as a discussion on the conceptual, methodological, classification and source data changes will be published on 15 February 2022.
