Report-03-10-01 - Subjective Poverty in South Africa: Findings of the Living Conditions Survey

Subjective Poverty in South Africa is a report based on the results of the Living Conditions Survey (LCS) conducted between September 2008 and August 2009. The main aim of this survey is to provide data that will contribute to better understanding poverty in South Africa and to provide data for monitoring levels of poverty over time.
