About Socio Economics

Andhra Pradesh Socio Economic Survey: Socioeconomics (also known as social economics) is the social science that studies how economic activity affects and is shaped by social processes. In general, it analyzes how societies progress, stagnate or regress because of their local or regional economy, or the global economy.

Socioeconomics is sometimes used as an umbrella term with different usages. The term ‘social economics’ may refer broadly to the “use of economics in the study of society.” More narrowly, contemporary practice considers behavioral interactions of individuals and groups through social capital and social “markets” (not excluding, for example, sorting by marriage) and the formation of social norms. In the latter, it studies the relation of economics to social values.
