Low Socio-Economic Status and Self-Esteem Among Moroccans, Students of Ouarzazaete City, as a Key Study.

Authors: El Mahdi Outbir

This study was conducted with the aim to measure the influence of socioeconomic status over selfesteem. These variables in question were put into analysis using quantitative research. Respectfully, a bulk of identical researches were piloted using both variables, and through the lens of the discrepancy encountered in the literature, the objective was to see the extent to which this research would support, confirm or deny the dominating notions. It is then a replication with a different group of participants who have never taken a chance to be part of this concept. Various variables were vital to the study, including; parental and students’ level of education, the area of living, the age, the gender and the mother tongue. With respect to the diversity that exists, subjects from rural and urban areas were given the chance and the same atmosphere to contribute. The instrument used to measure both variables were questionnaires. The total number of the participants who took the questionnaires was 81, with a number of 35 females and 46 males. Results to be discussed, a weak and negative correlation exist between socioeconomic status and self-esteem. A negative correlation (Pearson r) was found at a level of -.118, with an insignificance (p-value) at .463. Thus, the null hypothesis was not to be rejected.
