This study aims to assess the socio-economic status of Kuki tribal women in Moreh Town, Tengnoupal District, Manipur, and identify key influencing factors. Hypotheses suggest that their socioeconomic status may be lower, influenced by education, health, economic pursuits, and social behaviour. Data were collected from ten units within Moreh Town using structured questionnaires, with a sample size of 100 women. Responses were measured using a Likert scale, and data analysis was performed using SPSS, including T-tests and Cronbach’s Alpha for reliability. Findings indicate that the socio-economic status of Kuki women is generally low, with many women dependent on family members for financial management and limited participation in decision-making processes. Key factors influencing their socioeconomic conditions include education, health, economic pursuits, and social behaviour. The study confirms that better education, health, and economic opportunities could enhance their socioeconomic status and family roles.
