A Delphi Study of the Future of the Family.
Burks, Jayne Burress
Using the Delphi method, this study focused on the future of the family. The purposes of this study were twofold: (1) to study current trends having impact on the function and structure of the American family; and (2) to adapt the Delphi method to the study of social change. It concluded that a consensus exists between professional sociologists and a group of nonprofessional adults in regard to the family as an institution. Also, the Delphi method was found to be successful in assessing and predicting change in the family unit. (Author/EK)
