Developing a food (in) security map for South Africa is a 2015 working paper, published by the African Development Bank.

This study applies a survey matching technique to match the income and expenditure survey (IES) of 2005/06 and the Community Survey (CS) of 2007 to produce a food (in) security map for South Africa at various levels of disaggregation - province, district municipality, and local municipality.

In addition, the results are used to analyze the socioeconomic characteristics of food insecure households.
