The aim of the project is to provide policy makers with the latest socio-economic performance and trends for the Eastern Cape. Reports produced are used by ECSECC's internal and external stakeholders to inform policy and strategic planning processes.

Most of ECSECCs publications are generated by the economic and statistical researchers working on this project. The best known publications are the following:

  • Monthly review of inflation
  • Quarterly labour market review
  • Quarterly review of GDP
  • Quarterly review of trade and ports
  • District profiles
  • A perspective on the Eastern Cape Matric results
  • Analysis of labour market trends
See the statistics and data page for more information.

ECSECC also regularly provides training and support to stakeholders with data and analysis. Some examples include:

  • Assisted the department of Social Development (DSD) with a motivation on service specification costing model for the NGOs
  • Provided training and mentoring of ECNGOC staff on data capturing and data analysis in SPSS
