Potential Job Creation in the South African ICT Sector

Research Report. Human Sciences Research Council.

Lowitt analyses potential job creation in ICT. She provides a demand-side analysis of ICT and broadband, using four categories of demand: private consumption (individuals), private investment (large and small firms), government demand, and trade demand (sale of ICT-enabled services). The ICT sector is dealt with as a separate sector, whose size depends on demand from these categories. Demand is calculated in terms of increased output and sales attributable to increased broadband access and lower ICT prices. This output is translated into direct and indirect job creation.This report was prepared the Vision 2020 process of the Department of Communications in 2012.
