Influence of Socio-Economic Status on Level of Unrest among Students
“A mind that is characterized by unrest will not be tranquil even in the presence of great calm.” – Dalai Lama. This quote is the reason for the present study. The main aim of the study was to find out whether socio-economic status (SES) of students has any influence on the level of unrest in them? If yes, then does gender, age and course in which the student is enrolled affect the relationship between student unrest and socio-economic status? 782 students were measured on Student Unrest Measuring Scale (Dr. Vineeta Khanna, 1980) and Socio-Economic-Status Scale (Aggrawal et al, 2005). The result showed that SES and Student Unrest had a positive correlation (.511) and also that SES can predict the level of unrest in students. It was also observed that gender and age had a moderating effect on the relationship that SES had with student unrest.
