The Development of an Energy Project in South Africa
IHS Global Insight South Africa analysed the potential economic impact on the South African economy of an energy-related project in South and Southern Africa. This project included the development of infrastructure, as well as operational activities within the borders of South Africa. IHS Global Insight investigated the impact of the project on both the South African macroeconomy and the sub-national economies of the areas on which this project might have had an impact.
Export Data Analysis for the African Continent in a Global Context
IHS Global Insight South Africa analysed and evaluated the African continent’s historical export patterns relative to the global market in order to determine the potential for export diversification and import substitution for the continent as a whole.

Implications of the AIDS Epidemic for the South African Economy
IHS Global Insight South Africa was a major contributor to a groundbreaking study on the impact of HIV/AIDS on the South African macroeconomy that was published by an international brokerage. This study has been widely referenced in further work done by both academic and private-sector institutions. Using IHS Global Insight’s macroeconometric model, the costs of the epidemic to the economy were measured through its impact on the population, lower productivity, increased costs to companies, increased private-sector demand for healthcare, lower household income, and higher government expenditure on health services. The costs were measured by the impact on GDP, prices, interest rates, and balance of payments.
