Framework on Alternative Resource Index for Unobtainable Actual income: A Case for Primary School Learners

Mary Ann Faller Daclan

This paper focuses on the methodology involved in obtaining economic resource index from nine- year-old or third-grade learners who could not give accurate or estimated income information of their families. Instead of direct income information, the research instrument used a formulation of a resource index encompassing elements that a child can observe in her or his immediate surroundings, such as material possessions, parents' occupation, and housing conditions. The research instrument was tailored-fit for the very young respondents to easily answer the two response choices of "yes" and "no" corresponding to the commonly observable items in the resource index’ tri-components of material possession, parents’ occupation, and housing condition. The process detailed the scoring guidelines for categorizing the respondents' family economic resources into three levels: high, average, and low.
