32 Examples of Social Variables

 ,
A social variable is a measurable factor that influences social outcomes. These can influence the results of social research such that they may need to be controlled as an extraneous variable. For example, if your research finds that smokers are more likely to become pregnant, this would be unlikely to be a causal relationship such that some other variable that is positively correlated to smoking may be a better explanation. The following are common examples of social variables.
Age
Country of Birth
Criminal Record
Cultural Memberships
Debt
Education
Employment History
Employment Status
Ethnicity
Family Status
Health Status
Household Size
Household Type
Immigration Status
