KR’s Human Capital and Labour Research is unique in that it...

Integrates data

A team of researchers source the data from various credible and reliable institutions. The information and data in the country reports are from a number of reputable institutions and cross-checked and verified with objective analysis.

Specialises in Human Capital

A wide range of reports, research studies and various analyses exist that refer to the economic and political dispensation of African countries. Information about the human capital and labour force of any African country is, however, fragmented. The aim of the research is to offer an integrated view and analysis of the quality and quantity of human capital in African countries.

Provides analysis and trends

The research reports are not just filled with data. The data is analysed, benchmarked and compared. Trends are provided and implications are explored.

Is From Africa for Africa and the rest of the world

Many international organisations that produce research on Africa do not consider that Africa is not homogeneous. Each country is unique. KR’s researchers are well qualified, have international exposure and deliver work that is of an international standard whilst considering Africa’s unique context.
