1.0 Introduction Life expectancy, as indicator of development, varies widely throughout the many regions of the world. It is reflective of a country’s net welfare position and circumstances that exist in that country. Life expectancy is associated with socio-economic and economic factors like income, the level of health care, education, sanitation, and other factors such as the availability of clean water, disease and crime. As Mahfuz Kabir (2008) puts it, life expectancy is a function of economic factors and non-economic factors. Based on this assumption, a country life expectancy then becomes dependent on the quality of the combination of factors that exist within that country.
Macro practices goes beyond individual interventions, but are often based on needs, problems, issues, and concerns. Rothman, Erlich and Tropman 2008, identify three areas of intervention, communities, organizations, and small groups.

Durkheim wanted to have social cohesion and solidarity in society. Both Marx and Durkheim adopted structural arguments that delimited the influence and impact of individuals upon society and social change (Grant & Nixon 2015). Durkheim was interested in how the society worked, how it was structured and how it functioned to achieve equilibrium. Durkheim’s theories were founded on the concept of social facts, defined as norms, values and structures of society (Study.com 2003).
Taking a look at the evolution of society as a whole, structures from previous social organizations vary drastically from the civilization individuals reside in today; now known as a 'market society.' It has shifted towards a society where members of the community are now solely concerned about economic relations, rather than interpersonal relations. This is what Karl Polanyi refers to the emergence of market society as "the great transformation." The shift towards a market society is characterized by the emergence of a self-regulation society, allowing the birth of fictitious commodities, as well as placing great emphasis towards individualism. It focuses on the significant changes that have taken place since the transformation, which are further discussed through the notion of "protestant work ethic" and the
In today’s modern society, everyone is largely affected by society. From multiple social institutions like the government and economy for instance or even the effects of education and mass media; these all play a huge role in an individual’s relationship, behavior, and actions in their society. For an individual to understand things like a “culture” or why every society has a ‘social class hierarchy,’ they will be directed to “Sociology”. Sociology is the systematic study of the structures of human society and social interaction. Sociology attempts to understand how things like society, social events, interactions, and patterns influence the way humans think, act, and feel.

The Neoclassical theory involves the macroeconomic and microeconomic aspect. Macro focusing on structural factors and microeconomic focusing on an individual choice to migrate (Weiss, 2003).

The sociology of education is a diverse and vibrant subfield that features theory and research focused on how education as a social institution is affected by and affects other social institutions and the social structure overall, and how various social forces shape the policies, practices and outcomes of schooling. While education is typically viewed in most societies as a pathway to personal development, success, and social mobility and as a cornerstone of democracy, sociologists who study education take a critical view of these assumptions to study how the institution actually operates within society. They consider what other social functions education might have, like for example socialization into gender and class roles, and what other social outcomes contemporary educational institutions might produce, like reproducing class and racial hierarchies, among
