The dynamics of social change in europe

Objective

The research had five objectives:
1. To undertake studies of the processes of change in the domains of family structure, employment, household income and living standards.
2. To establish the mutual influences of each of these domains on the others.
3. To draw conclusions about the roles of social policy, and the prospects for reform.
4. To exploit the research opportunities provided by the European Community Household Panel survey (ECHP), applying the most advanced analytical techniques.
5. To encourage wider use of the data among European social scientists, both by example, and by providing direct support services.
The research will be based on the quantitative analysis of longitudinal data. The ECHP has been following the same sample of people in most EU countries since 1994; by the end of the research programme it will provide a continuous sequence of six or seven years.
The research team is composed of specialists in the analysis of household panel data, and its members are already familiar with the ECHP.
The programme is specified in terms of research packages under three headings:
(i) labour market;
(ii) family and employment;
(iii) income and quality of life.
