    Thumbs up Socio-economic Classification ( India )

    SOCIO-ECONOMIC CLASSIFICATION ( INDIA )

    The Socio-economic status (SES) is an important determinant of health and nutritional status as well as of mortality and morbidity. Socio-economic status also influences the accessibility, affordability, acceptability and actual utilization of various available health facilities. There have been several attempts to develop different scales to measure the socioeconomic status. The earliest attempts to find out the social class of an individual were from the standpoint of psychologists.

    In Indian studies, the classification of British Registrar General based on occupation was tried earlier. Later on Prasad's classification of 1961based on per capita monthly income and later modified in 1968 and 1970 has been extensively used. Now a days Kuppuswami scale is widely used to measure the socio-economic status of an individual in urban community based on three variables namely education, occupation and income.
    The modification of Kuppuswami scale meant to determine the socioeconomic status of family based on education and occupation of head of the family and per capita income per month has also been widely used. Recently, Mishra et al have suggested an economic revision of Kuppuswami's scale in order to account for the devaluation of rupee.

    In the Rural areas, Pareekh classification based on nine characteristics namely
    1.Caste
    2.Occupation of family head
    3.Educatiion of family head
    4.Level of social participation of family head
    5.Landholding
    6.Housing
    7.Farm power
    8.Material possessions
    9.Type of family.

    The present instrument is proposed to measure the socio-economic status of the family and is neither based on the individual nor on the head of the family. Unlike the commonly used Kuppuswami Scale and later its modification, the modified version of Kuppuswami Scale and Pareekh Scale, the instrument developed by us is applicable both for urban as well as rural families. Moreover, the instrument has been developed for all sections of the Society.

    Modified prasad is of 1997.... this is not latest....
    latest one u can calculate from CPI... consumer price index...
    the multiplying factor(F) = 4.93*CPI/100
    Now multiply each catgory of old prasad wid this factor and u wl get new modified prasad classification...
    Current CPI is i think 574 Nov 2008
