Abstract

With a population of approximately 54 million people, Statistics South Africa (2014) reports that about 12 million people live in extreme poverty in South Africa, meaning they survive on R335 per person per month. Evans Mupela et al. report on a study to profile the state of poverty and its manifestations within communities in South Africa, commissioned by the National Development Agency (NDA).
