    Description: This data set was collected in Limpopo, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. The target populations were participants in NDA projects that were mainly concerned with income generation namely, the Vukuzenzele Weaving Project, the Zamokuphila Piggery Farming Cooperative, the Asisukume Msinga Agricultural Cooperative, the RASEKO Agricultural Cooperative and Emazizini Primary Cooperative. 15 respondents were selected from each project. The administered questionnaire dealt with policy perceptions of poverty across different themes.

To enhance the quantitative findings from the panel data set, a survey of the perceptions and attitudes of people in the three poorest provinces identified from the quantitative analysis, was done. The survey was therefore part of the bigger Poverty Manifestation Study. This is the data presented here. It was collected in Limpopo, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
