Draw insights from South Africa’s richest datasets from various fields and sources.
The Data Portal includes access to demographics, product and brand attitudes, financial habits, credit rating and online behaviour within the population, as well as so much more. Whatever business you’re in, we have the data necessary to inform key decisions.
You don’t need to be an expert to use our data; we make it simple and accessible. We’ve done the heavy statistical and methodological work, so that you don’t have to. We use the data for our research and consulting projects, so have selected the best data and validated the integrity and accuracy of the data. Our team of statisticians, data scientists, actuaries and developers have ensured that you can quickly and intuitively find the data to answer your questions.
With a wealth of expertise in merging and enriching datasets from a variety of external sources (from deeds to credit bureau to census to surveys), we understand that the analysis is only as reliable as the data that inspired it. That is why we have curated only the best and most accurate datasets available.
We enhance data through structure and categorization. We give you the tools to quickly search datasets for the data you want, to communicate findings through visualisations and even to use past data to forecast future trends. Many widely-accepted market and audience segmentations are built into the Data Portal, but you can also build your own customised segments, and view data per segment.
You don’t have to understand the maths to make use of them, we’ve done that for you. And if you do need help, our support team of data experts is available to assist.
Although the Data Portal includes access to the best datasets available, you might generate your own data. You can upload it to the Data Portal, and make use of all the advanced analytics functionality and visualisation tools. Combine it with existing datasets to create a complete story from all relevant data.
Generate dynamic visual dashboards to conveniently demonstrate high-level trends across your datasets. These dashboards can be saved, updated and shared with others. Create dashboards to track KPIs, market movement or to show support for strategic business decisions.

Eighty20 is wonderful to work with. They play a critical role in providing market research, data and advice for the South African market which has clear and positive impact on our long term strategic direction for our clients
Over the years we have worked with many consulting companies of varying degrees of proficiency and ability. Eighty 20 ranks as one of the very best. They combine a huge intellectual capacity with a real level of concern for our business, and that is extremely rare in today’s business world. I would recommend them without hesitation as a brilliant resource, and the company that has them as a consultant is indeed very fortunate.
I know Eighty 20 well and have been exposed to various of their research projects over the past few years.
I’ve always found them highly professional in their business dealings, with a dedicated team of researchers who deliver work of a very high standard. More importantly, they are able to pull together data from various sources, including their own field work, to provide meaningful management information, as well as key insights for strategic planning. Their reports are comprehensive and I place a high level of trust in the accuracy thereof. They also represent the data in a fresh, visually appealing way, to create interest. Furthermore, I’ve found them always keen to address any specific queries.
I can highly recommend Eighty 20
