Abstract


In the process of developing woman as an entrepreneur, her socio-economic variables/
background play an important role in satisfying their needs for achievements. Keeping
in view, an attempt is made to get correlation co-efficient between seven needs for
achievement and socio-economic variables. Fifteen women entrepreneurs from each
zonal area of Agra city was selected running both boutique and beauty parlours. Primary
data were collected through interview schedule. Based on nature of information,
correlation co-efficient was used as statistical measure. The findings of this study are
that age and family size were not correlated with three single needs and four integrated
needs. Out of the selected independent variable, caste is positively and significantly
correlated with need for influence (+0.208539*) and need for personal and social
achievement (+0.367637**) while caste is negatively and significantly correlated with
need for personal achievement (-0.2527*) and influence oriented need for personal
achievement (-0.22326*). Education showed negative and significant correlation with
need for personal achievement (-0.62558**) and need for personal and social
achievement (-0.22475*), while influence oriented need for social achievement
depicted positive and significant correlation with education (+0.25597*). Marital status
was found significantly and negatively correlated with need for personal achievement
(-0.40623**) and need for personal and social achievement (-0.25138*). It showed
significant and positive correlation with influence oriented need for social achievement
(+3.21553**). Family type showed significant and negative correlation with need for
personal achievement (-0.385997**). Level of social participation of women
entrepreneurs showed positive correlation with need for social achievement
(+0.28031*). Family occupation of women entrepreneurs exhibited negative and
significant correlation with need for personal achievement (-0.494392**) and need
for social achievement (-0.373273**). Family income showed negative and significant
correlation with need for personal achievement (-0.302924**) while it is positively
and significantly correlated with need for influence. After getting information,
