Socioeconomic Status (SES)

Socioeconomic status (SES) describes the class or wealth level of an individual or group. It is essentially where an individual is perceived socially in regards to wealth, education, occupation, and opportunities. Low SES groups have less access to resources and less ability to change their position than do people in higher SES groups. SES is a frequently used identifier and focus of study in psychological research.
