Measures of socioeconomic status for child health research : comparative results from Bangladesh and Pakistan.
This paper examines the reliability and validity of several hypothesized indicators of socioeconomic status for use in epidemiologic research, particularly in studies of child health in the less developed world.
Population-based surveys of child health and disability were completed in Bangladesh and Pakistan using standard questionnaires designed to measure four domains of household socioeconomic status: wealth, housing, parental education and occupation.
Test-retest data indicate moderate to excellent reliability of most of the socioeconomic indicators in both countries.
