Addressing the challenges of poverty and inequality in South Africa, this book uses new techniques to measure and analyze the nature and function of vulnerability in the labor market and the links between labor market participation and household poverty and inequality. Also investigated are current social and labor market policies and the implications of current antipoverty policies and strategies. Finally, proposals for the development of new and effective strategies and policies to fight poverty in South Africa are offered.

“This study uses current methods in modern labour economics, deploys them on appropriate South African data sets, and answers questions on which previously we had limited knowledge, or in some cases, none at all. We regard this volume as the major reference work on labour markets, poverty, and inequality in South Africa.” —Gary Fields and Erik Thorbecke, Cornell University
