The study aims to identify the most significant authors, universities, countries, and citations in the field, to highlight author, university, and country collaborations in the field, to learn about the research topics that researchers have been working on recently, and to look at Malaysia's contribution to the field. According to the research, Malaysia, China, and the United States are the top three in terms of reducing urban poverty. The most well-known author is Zaman, K., and the host universities for urban poverty researchers are mostly Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Malaya, and Universiti Putra Malaysia. According to the data, there is little cooperation among authors, colleges, and nations tackling urban poverty. Malaysian research and contributions to the study of urban poverty are weak.
