Allardt describes the basic principles underlying the indicator system originated in the Comparative Scandinavian Welfare Study of 1972; contrasts them with those conceived in the Swedish Level of Living Survey of 1968; and argues that the comparative model not only offers a more comprehensive set of indicators but also permits the introduction of new indicators and measures when society changes. By focusing on the level of need satisfaction instead of resources, and by taking into account objective and subjective indicators, Allardt concludes that the comparative model is more able to convey a sociologically meaningful picture of the states of well‐being in a society.
