Abstract:In the absence of suitable data, the extent of social and economic differentiation in the bantustans and the specific form which it takes, has not been examined quantitatively. Drawing upon survey data gathered from some 1100 households surveyed in five rural magisterial districts in KwaZulu between 1983 and 1986, this paper makes a contribution towards the analysis of inequalities within rural areas. The distribution and composition of household income, access to the subsistence factors of production, and stages in the development cycle are factors which are considered. The paper concludes that it is possible to identify a process of differentiation within KwaZulu, although it is difficult to ascribe this process as class formation given the available data. Bibliogr.
