Abstract:The Limpopo province is one of the poorest regions in South Africa. The article develops a poverty profile for the province by location, administrative region and racial grouping. It uses data generated from the 1995 Income and Expenditure Survey by Statistics South Africa, the most recent data set at the time. It shows that poverty is quite high in the rural areas, though urban poverty is also significant. Bushbuckridge, Southern, Central and Lowveld administrative regions are the poorest as are non-white households. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
