一个人的社会经济背景较低，对其在社会中通过年轻男性犯罪的影响较大。这主要是由于他们仰视具有丰富社会经济背景的人民。这使得他们不断地试图成为社会的富裕阶层(Salter, 2016)。在追求从低社会经济条件向富裕社会经济条件转变的过程中，男性被认为主要是在过去和现在犯下罪行。这些罪行的发生通常是由于缺乏资源和家庭内部的普遍混乱，导致在阐明能够产生丰硕成果的活动方面缺乏指导。社会经济地位(SES)通常由职业、教育和收入等多种因素来衡量。它通常被定义为一个群体或个人的社会阶层(Salter, 2016)。从社会阶层的角度来看，特权、控制和权力得到了越来越多的重视(Salter, 2016)。此外，社会经济地位审查作为一个连续的变量，显示了在资源获得和分配方面的不平等。
The low socio-economic background of a person influences to a higher extent in causing offences committed through young males within the society. This is primarily due to them looking upward at the people of rich socio-economic backgrounds. This makes them constantly attempt to be like the rich classes of the society (Salter, 2016). Within their pursuit of moving from low to rich socio-economic condition, males are seen more primarily to be making offences in the past and presently. The offences are committed commonly due to the scarcity of resources and general disruption within families leading to lack of guidance in articulating activities that can deliver fruitful outcomes. The socioeconomic status (SES) is usually measured as a couple of various elements inclusive of occupation, education and income. It is generally conceptualized as societal class of a group or an individual (Salter, 2016). When seen through a lens of social class, an increased emphasis on the privilege, control and power can be viewed (Salter, 2016). Moreover, SES examination as a continual variable showcases the inequalities within the access as well as distribution of the resources.
It is considered that SES affects the overall functioning of the human. This includes the personal mental and physical health, residing neighbourhoods, activities of daily lives and resource accessibility. The effects of SES are evident throughout the span of life. Differences within the SES like disparities in the income, wealth distribution, access towards the resources and social problems mitigation (Salter, 2016). Low SES is correlated with the low educational level; poor health conditions and poverty eventually impact the overall society. These are some of the factors that contribute towards young male offences within the society as they are often misguided to rectify these issues at individual level through committing crimes. They commit these crimes as they could provide their families or themselves with temporary relief from the deteriorated conditions in terms of finance and misdirected aggression.
