Abstract

FERRANTE, Vera Lúcia S. Botta; VERTUAN, Valdemar  and  TOLEDO, Benedicto Egbert Correa de. A model of socio-economic analysiss its construction and obtained results. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1976, vol.10, n.2, pp.177-190. ISSN 1518-8787.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101976000200005.

A model of socio-economic analysis is here presented with the purpose of constructing a possible scale of society's structure and determinating the position of a certain population in it. The model was constructed from a group of indicators, previously selected as being the most significative for further evaluation of the socio-economic level of the sample. The objective of the construction of this particular model is to demonstrate the interference of socio-economic variables in the occurrence of certain oral problems. The investigation showed the following composition for the studied population: inferior low, 21.8%; superior low, 39.9%; inferior middle, 26.6%; superior middle, 9.1%; inferior high, 1.7%; superior high, 0.5%.

Keywords : Socio-economic analysis; Socio-economic level; Socio-economic model.
