Investigating multidimensional poverty in South Africa in 2001-2016: The multidimensional poverty index (MPI) approach
Since the dawn of democracy, South Africa has come a long way in trying to eradicate problems relating to poverty and inequality that the apartheid system left deeply engraved within the midst of our society. To date we however still live in a society characterised by severe socio-economic challenges. Most of these challenges are not straight fold, onedimensional issues. Instead, in most cases one would find that with each challenge, stem even more interrelated challenges. Up to now, poverty, associated with notions relating to scarcity, insufficiency and deficiency, is still one of these major challenges South Africa seems to be grappling with.
