Each volume in this valuable reference series provides a comprehensive profile of social change in an industrialized national society during the period 1960 to 1990. The subjects examined range from kinship to computerization and from perceptions of the future to societal values.

The series is prepared by the International Research Group for the Comparative Charting of Social Change, an international body of scholars working in national teams. This collaborative effort aims at preparing a comprehensive, numerically grounded description of recent social trends in industrialized societies; identifying similarities and differences among these societies with respect to ongoing social trends and subjecting these similarities and differences to comparative analysis; developing a non-traditional model of social change to accommodate these data; and establishing benchmarks for future tracking of social change.

All volumes in the series consist of seventy-eight trend reports grouped under seventeen main topics. Each of the reports has four sections: an abstract of findings, an explanatory text, a collection of statistical charts, and a bibliography of sources. A firm grounding in fact is fundamental to this series. The information presented on recent and current trends is verifiable and assertions about future trends are supported by empirical data. The tendencies documented in these national profiles, however, are not merely interpretations of statistical information: they reflect an understanding of social theory and social reality that goes far beyond the raw data.
