Abstract: "Socio­‐economic
situation
means
an
individual's
or
a

group's
position
within
a
hierarchical
social
structure.
Socio-­economic
status
depends
on
a
combination
of
variables,
including
occupation,
education,
income,

wealth,
and
place
of
residence.
While
sociologists
often
use
socio-­economic
status
as
a
means
of
predicting
behavior,
geographers
used
to
focus
on
that

position
with
the
relations
to
or
reference
of
a
place
or
space
or
a
region.
Therefore,
in
this

paper,
the
variables
of
the
social
and
economic
status
of
a
small
village
will
be
examined
at
an

individual
level
with
the
respects
of
location,
physical
phenomena,
human
resource,
land
use

pattern
and
the
environmental
perception
of
the
rural
dwellers
from
Sinlan
Village.

This

village
is
located
about
1km
northwest
of
Pyin
Oo
Lwin
town.
It
lies
at
an
elevation
of
about

1,160

meters
above
sea
level
so
that
it
receives
temperate
climate.
As
consequence,
the
main

economy
and
living
style
of
the
village
is
quite
different
to

that
of

the
others.

Random

sampling
method
was
used

to
define
the
number

of

households
to
be
visited
and
interviewing

and
field
observation
methods
are
also
applied

to
collect
the
necessary
data
by
the
teachers

and
PhD
preliminary
students
from
Geography
Department,
Mandalay
University.
The
field

survey
was
made
in
February,2015.".....Paper delivered at the International Conference on Burma/Myanmar Studies: Burma/Myanmar in Transition: Connectivity, Changes and Challenges: University Academic Service Centre (UNISERV), Chiang Mai University, Thailand, 24-­26 July 2015.
