My suggestion would be


Explanation:
"clase social, determinada por aproximación al lugar en donde viva/habita en Londres..." because what they are saying is that depending on the area the individuals surveyed lived was the criterion utilized for determining their social class.

valor sustitutivo, valor representativo


Explanation:
Creo que "proxy measure" está haciendo referencia a un término estadístico que significa "valor sustitutivo o representativo": ..."clase social determinada por el valor representativo del lugar en que habita en Londres"...
