The questions to be answered in my research project are:
- What developments have occured in societal positions, value orientations and behavioural patterns of the elderly between 1970 and 1984 according to income, status and power?
- In what way can the age stratifaction theory, the relative deprivation theory and the rational choice theory explain the described developments?
- How can the described developments in the Netherlands compare with developments in the United States of America, Great Britain and the German Federal Republic?
