About this item

The Handbook of Social Status Correlates summarizes findings from nearly 4000 studies on traits associated with variations in socioeconomic status. Much of the information is presented in roughly 300 tables, each one providing a visual snapshot of what research has indicated regarding how a specific human trait appears to be correlated with socioeconomic status. The social status measures utilized and the countries in which each study was conducted are also identified.


    • Are personality traits such as extraversion, competitiveness, and risk-taking associated with social status?
    • How universal are sex differences in income and other forms of social status?
    • What is the association between health and social status?
    • How much does the answer vary according to specific diseases?
    • How well established are the relationships between intelligence and social status?
    • Is religiosity associated with social status, or does the answer depend on which religion is being considered?
    • Are physiological factors correlated with social status, even factors involving the brain?
    • Finally, are there as yet any "universal correlates of social status"?
