A Macro-level is defined in our text books as “a wide-scale view of the role of social structures within a society”. A Macro-Level issue that can lead to poverty is how society puts certain people in different levels of the social structure based off things such as their race, gender and religion. This is very unfair and gives certain groups of people a disadvantage of living above poverty because many times these issues cause inequalities in education, employment and income for these marginalized groups of individuals. These people never get a chance to make something of themselves because of how society sees them and classifies them. Two Marco-level solutions to poverty are providing more affordable schooling in areas of poverty so individuals have a better chance at getting an education which will lead to a better job and also improving the economy, so the prices of resources and necessities will become more affordable for
One would believe that in today’s society the level of inequality decreases or no longer exist yet daily one’s “attributes such as minority status, gender, and class affect a person’s access to socially valued recourses” (Sociology 1000. Pearson Collection pg. 258). Social inequality can be measured through inequality of conditions, and inequality of opportunities. Inequality of conditions allude to the unequal distribution of material goods, income, and wealth.
There is little peace in a world characterized by painful differences between the rich and the poor, between the haves and the have-nots. Poverty is certainly not conducive to peace. Inequality in resources and opportunities is a direct burden on the poor themselves i.e. poor people as well as poor countries. When poverty is persistent, degrading, miserable, life-shortening, life-threatening, and life denying, it is an affront to human dignity.
However, both the measures only capture the “per capita intensity” of poverty and need to be used along with HCR for a better picture of poverty in any society. These measures also fail to reflect relative deprivation or inequality among the poor. Moreover, these measures are insensitive to any income transfer between the poor. These criticisms led to better measures of poverty like that of Sen’s and the one proposed by Foster, Greer and Thorbecke (Ibid). Corollaries of poverty Poverty is a multi-dimensional phenomenon.
For a country like ours, the issues such as equity in the distribution of income or wealth among the different regions or social groups, equitable access to different public services in the areas of education, health, physical infrastructure, power, and communication are of utmost important. That is the reason why, measuring poverty, inequality, regional disparity is deriving greater interest among the thinkers working on development and disparity. The present paper mainly concentrates on the concept and measurement of poverty in terms of income as well as non-income dimensions/deprivations such as education, health, standard of living and income inequality.
Deprivation also refers to lacking what is desirable for well-being and having dimensions are social, physical, economic, political. Poverty is accepted as multidimensional (UNDP, 1990). It is influenced by social, cultural, institutional, political and economic. Efforts requires in multiple areas that promote opportunities and empowerment, and then improve security. Consideration to the multidimensional deprivations, for example hunger, unclean drinking water, illiteracy, lack of access to credit, empowerment and social exclusion have shifted the investigative lens to the dynamics of poverty and it is also become an institution within social and political norms (UNDP, 1994).Poverty as a multidimensional nature suggested living standard, health, assets, education, occupation or livelihood are the dimensions of poverty (Salahuddin and Zaman,
In this study the author has used different type of methods to summarize data such as tabulated description (tables) and statistical commentary (discussion of the results). The descriptive analysis for this raw data set was done through a crosstab analysis and the table received from the crosstab analysis is shown in Table 4.2.

Furthermore, the effects of poverty are said interrelated as they do not occur alone. According to Wilkinson and Pickett (2014), when there are inequalities in the country it resulted in poorer health, lower educational attainment, higher crime rates, lower spending of social capital and lower cooperation with and trust of government. All these resulted from poverty actually affect the political stability in developing world. Inequalities in wealth distribution often link with the living condition of the people in country. Inequalities basically widen the gap between the rich and the poor (Shah, 2014).
Parametric tests Parametric tests are used when the population is normally distributed, i.e. a bell-shaped curve which is symmetrical about the mean and is spread according to the value of standard deviation. Parametric tests are useful when the scales of
For instance, a relationship where one makes money and the other takes care of the household can be disconcerting. Both parties in this case feel they’re working too hard and not getting enough appreciation, which causes paramount strain in people’s emotions. The accumulation of negative emotions contributes to the eventual decay of a relationship and this negativity is mainly caused by imbalance when it comes to duties and expectations. Relationships can become happier when there’s balance, which can be obtained by compromising. 6.
