Social Change: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource


Social change refers to any significant alteration over time in behavior patterns, cultural values, and norms. Social change can be slow or rapid; emergent (through the unfolding of daily life and small cumulative changes), transformative (through crisis) or projectable (planned). It can be caused by a variety of social, cultural, political, economic, technological, and environmental forces.

The goal of this exercise is to explore the differential impact of social change on three generations of Americans in the 1970s. Crosstabulations and comparison of means tests will be used.
