Based on the attitude toward the social inequality and welfare issues, this research categorizes South Koreans into three groups. With RCA (Relational Class Analysis), the main method of this research, survey respondents’ attitude toward certain issues could be categorized not by the contents of their responses, but by the constraints of those. RCS makes possible for the researcher to grasp how coherently people form their attitude toward certain issues, along with factors which can affect such coherency.
