Relationship of psychoticism with certain socio-economic variables



Relationship of psychoticism with certain socio-economic variables



Indian Journal of Psychiatry 24(2): 164-168



A psychoticism questionnaire developed by the authors (Arora & Varma, 1980 a, b) was administered to 100 psychotics, 100 neurotics, 100 relatives of psychotics, and 100 normals. Relationship of P-score with six socioeconomic variables, i.e., age, sex, education, occupation, religion and urban, rural background was studied. P-score was found to be higher in younger age group (15-24 years) in each of the four clinical groups but was significantly low in psychoitics and their relatives. No sex differences were observed regarding P-score. Significant inverse relationship between P-score and education and occupational status was found only for the normal groups. No significant difference was seen in psychoticism score between the two religious groups-Hindus and Sikhs. Those from rural background had higher P-score as compared to those from urban background, but the differences did not reach statistical significance.
