Some social analysts focus on the characteristics of individuals that they assume contribute to poverty. These include dropping out of school, having children at a younger age, averaging more children than women in the other social classes, and their desire for immediate gratification. Other social analysts focus on the social structure to explain why some people are poor. They stress that some features of society deny some people equal access to opportunities based on their ascribed statuses and changes in the labor market.
