Household approaches to labour market issues in South Africa are not at all new. This paper presents a review of some household themes that have been used to examine the relationship between individuals and the labour market, and employs a search model of the labour market, adapted for household effects, to understand why some South Africans are successful in their job search while others remain jobless.
