Abstract

Socioeconomic status (SES) reflects the resources individuals have connected to family income, household wealth, parental education, and occupation. SES is associated with almost every aspect of individual well-being, beginning prior to birth and extending throughout the life course. SES affects development through a variety of mechanisms: biological, social, and material; and there is ongoing interplay between genetically influenced personal characteristics and socioeconomic conditions. Socioeconomic conditions present at the neighborhood and societal level also influence developmental course.
