No wp-2019-100, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)
This paper examines the extent and determinants of structural poverty dynamics in South Africa, focusing on the socio-economically disadvantaged urban African population. The quantitative analysis using panel data is triangulated with evidence from a qualitative case study integrating focus group discussions and life history interviews conducted in the township of Khayelitsha, Cape Town.
