The Nigerian Living Standards Survey (NLSS) has revealed that 52% of Nigerians are living below the poverty line, which translates to over 105 million people living on less than $1 per day. The survey, conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics and the World Bank, also shows that poverty levels are higher in rural areas than in urban areas, with poverty rates of 64.2% and 40.7%, respectively.
