Formatted abstract
      Socioeconomic status has many dimensions some of which are measurable while others are not. This study focus upon some important measurable indicators which are broadly categorized into three groups: Health, Education and Employment and compiled sub index for these indicators followed by aggregate status index for the period of 1970-90.

      In this study it is found that status inequality is different in different regions of the world depending upon their economic development level. Thus status of women in the low income countries was found comparatively low. It also shows that in given time period as a whole, the low income regions showed improvement in status. Two main generalization can be made from this study:

              1. Women have not achieved fully equality any where in the world.
              2. This inequality is higher in low income less developed countries.
