Socio-economic Groups Socio-economic groups are currently ranked and divided into 6 diverse divisions, according to ones occupation/ means of living. These six different socio-economic groups are as follows: A- Higher managerial, administrative, professional e.g. Chief executive, senior civil servant, surgeon B - Intermediate managerial, administrative, professional e.g. bank manager, teacher C1- Supervisory, clerical, junior managerial e.g. shop floor supervisor, bank clerk, sales person C2 - Skilled manual workers e.g. electrician, carpenter D- Semi-skilled and unskilled manual workers e.g. assembly line worker, refuse collector, messenger E - Casual labourers, pensioners, unemployed e.g. pensioners without private pensions and anyone living on basic benefits

With in depth analysis and discussion between my partner and I beforehand, we derived to the conclusion that all of the above groups have relevance to our film and would be able to relate and produce some sort of connection with the characters, their means of living and possibly the topic. Furthermore, suicidal thoughts can occur through any type of person regardless of their socio-economical group. A Chief Executive, one with managerial authority, can too suffer from suicidal thoughts or attempts possibly due to depression, stress or personal predicaments. This also applies to individuals grouped within the last division, E. Those unemployed will be able to connect, and as a result, form a relationship with Christian as they would know from their personal experience how it may feel to be classed as a NEET (Not in any Education, Employment or Training) or just simply living on basic benefits. This goes without saying that no matter whom you are, no matter what your occupation and status may be, there is still a fair chance that suicide may jump onto your lane or someone you may know dearly.
