Primary Socioeconomic Factors

In practice, a handful of factors are used to determine socioeconomic status and socioeconomic class. This is because income and wealth solve most economic problems. For example, if you're wealthy you're not likely to experience housing insecurity and other problems of poverty.
Education level is used to differentiate between socioeconomic classes such as the working class and the intelligentsia that may have similar income levels. For example, an artist trained in fine arts wouldn't be viewed as working class whatever their income.
