Social problems are both diverse and interlinked. For example, tackling social exclusion involves simultaneously addressing barriers to labour market integration, health care issues and education. Coping with an ageing society requires new approaches to health care and employment, as well as to pensions. Social indicators have been developed to provide the broad perspective needed for any international comparison and assessment of social trends, outcomes and policies. By linking social status and social response indicators across a broad range of policy areas, social indicators help readers to identify whether and how the broad thrust of social policies and societal actions are addressing key social policy issues.

Social indicators provide a concise overview of social trends and policies while paying due attention to the different national conditions in which such policies are being pursued. The social indicators in Society at a Glance may be represented along a two-dimensional classification. The first dimension corresponds to three main goals of social policy, i.e. self-sufficiency, equity and social cohesion. The second dimension corresponds to the nature of the indicators, i.e. social context, social status, and societal responses. This edition includes a wide range of information on social policy areas, including demography, family characteristics, employment, working mothers, out-of-work replacement rates, pension replacement rates, poverty, social expenditure, health care expenditure, subjective well-being and suicides.
