- Previous studies (Mannheim, 1928; Ortega, 1933; Ryder, 1965; Carlsson and Karlson, 1970; Glenn, 1977; Reed, 1978; Duncan and Winsborough, 1984) have emphasized the importance of cohort analysis as a methodological technique in the study of social phenomena. Ryder (1965:858) indicates that "the cohort record, as macro-biography, is the aggregate analogue of the individual life history," and thus it provides the essential "temporal isomorphism" for the investigation of the processes of social change from the social structural perspectives. Reed (1978:406) notes that the cohort composition of society has a direct bearing on the conditions for social change and that major social structural transformations have frequently been associated with the unique conditions and problems facing particular cohorts.
