For our purposes, we can safely ignore this literature, not just because socioeconomic scales have largely fallen out of fashion within sociology, but also because they only index the social location of currently or recently employed workers and cannot, as a result, be readily applied to the study of poverty. Among sociologists who David B. Grusky and Kim A. Weeden 23 prefer a gradational model, poverty has therefore typically been studied in terms of an income paradigm, just as in economics. This is not to suggest that the income paradigm is dominant within sociology.
Another interesting feature is that separate poverty aversion parameters can be selected for the two dimensions. Again, the measure is based on the assumption that the two attributes are substitutes. Three interesting empirical applications are presented to illustrate that their approach can cover wide ranges of poverty thresholds, yield two, three and even four-dimensional surfaces where one distribution dominates another – as in the case of urban vs rural people in Vietnam using incomes and nutritional status as the two elements.
An increase in income for a severely deprived person in terms of health and education should cause a larger reduction in poverty than the same increase in income going to a less severely deprived individual. Clearly, ‘one at a time’ comparisons of poverty in terms of income, education, health, and so on, cannot capture these interdependencies. Populations that exhibit higher correlations among attributes of well-being will be poorer than those that do not, relative to what one would expect on the basis of univariate comparisons alone.
