In our entry we focus on subjective evaluation of the socio-economic situation of residents of the South Bohemian Region. We explore and describe factors as well as contexts contributing to such subjective evaluations. The research was conducted via a survey, which made use of a self-designed questionnaire consisting of primarily closed scale questions focusing on areas including evaluating the socio-economic situation, the ability to manage own income. The sample consisted of 700 questionnaires.
The results of the research show that 43.4% of respondents have average income management skills and that the ability to manage income is statistically independent from age, education level, or sex of the respondent. Employment also does not statistically influence the ability. As part of subjective evaluation of poverty/wealth, the respondents feel to be middle class (29.1%), the extremes were selected seldomly. Only one percent evaluated their situation as poverty; 0.1% saw perceived themselves as wealthy.
Key words: socio-economic situation / poverty / social status / economic dimension
