We discuss societal change issues in two parts: those related to household and population, and those related to the workplace. Among the former, we identify growth of the elderly population, foreign immigration, decline of the nuclear family, growing income disparities, and impacts of information technology on lifestyle as worthy of comparative research. We argue that workplace related changes, being driven by information and telecommunications technology and globalization, are particularly promising areas for research. These include various types of teleworking, increases in flexible forms of employment, and changing linkages between and among firms. Little is yet known about these changes, or about how they may affect location and travel patterns. These technology-induced changes will be mediated by political, social and cultural values, hence providing a rich area for international collaborative research.
