This research is a continuation of our previous research, which looked at the comparison of the incomes of the working poor in 2010 and 2020 in the South West region of Aceh (Regencies, Aceh Jaya, Aceh Barat, Nagan Raya, Aceh Barat Daya, Simeulue, Aceh Selatan, Subulussalam, and Singkil). Still at the same locus, we try to present what other effects are on the income of a working poor. Armed with the MCA method as an analytical tool, it makes this even more interesting and adds to the newness of the data that we obtained directly in the field. From the test results we found that; The income of the working poor in the South West is influenced by gender, where the urban working poor category in the informal and non-agricultural sectors earn better than the rural poor in the agricultural sector, and the effect of age has an impact on the incomes of the working poor. The existence of the age factor makes poor workers tend to be able to migrate, it is possible for workers in the informal sector to be high in urban areas. Although not so large, the income of the working poor has an influence on other variables that we use, such as marital status, education level, and number of hours worked.
