The study addresses a number of issues of concern under various sectors of man's environment. For each issue three types of available information are compiled: (1) public laws and other less formal understandings that set minimum standards, (2) objective data that reflect how well those standards are being met, and (3) subjective data that reflect how people feel about that aspect of the quality of their life. Man's needs are grouped into two major areas--(1) basic needs, including minimal life conditions necessary to meet physiological and security needs, and (2) higher needs, to include social needs, ego needs, and a need for self-fulfillment. Standards are being categorized under each major need area, according to four levels of concern, arranged in a heirarchical order: First, the existing welfare concern--a statement of the threshold level; second, security--standards insuring the welfare for all persons; and finally, ability to influence--standards that allow individuals to influence threshold levels and their own access to welfare.
