Technical Note

Using qualitative approaches to develop a complex construct: measuring socioeconomic position

Uma. V. Sankar, Mala Ramanathan, V. Raman Kutty.

Socioeconomic position (SEP) is a complex construct to define and measure in the health context. In the present study, the multidimensionality, complexity, and the dynamicity of the construct ‘socioeconomic position’ were addressed. These three characteristics of the construct were interrelated to each other. This made the process of measuring SEP more difficult. Qualitative approaches were used to overcome the methodological challenges of measuring this construct.

Key words: Qualitative, socioeconomic position, sequntial, construct
