Title: “Well-Being and Objective Poverty Indices: Evidence from Panel Data in South Africa”
Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between subjective well-being and objective poverty indices: income poverty and multidimensional poverty. By applying the Blow-up and Cluster estimation of fixed effects ordered logit model (Baetschmann et al. 2015) to a panel data collected in South Africa, this study finds that both income and multidimensional poverty indices significantly affect subjective well-being, though the large part of the variation cannot be explained by these indices or other conventional factors. This study also evaluates the relative importance of these objective poverty indices in terms of subjective well-being.
