The Sunday Times Generation Next Survey polled 6 060 urban and peri-urban youths aged 8-22 across seven South African provinces in 2012.

HDI Youth Marketeers MD Jason Levin says, "The study is now eight years old, and it's amazing to see the gravitas it has built up over that time. From a humble beginning where we were trying to fill a research gap, Generation Next has now built serious industry interest, and has become the de facto standard in youth consumer behaviour understanding. So, yes, we are very proud of it, and grateful to our partners who help us keep driving it from strength to strength."
