Social change is the alteration in the social order of a society. Changes in social institutions, nature, social relations or social behaviours are included in social change. Social change refers to the social progress or sociocultural evolution. Social change may be driven by cultural, religious, economic, scientific or technological forces. Two types of sources are there for social change. One is random or unique factors such as climate, weather, or the presence of specific groups of people. Another one is systematic factors. Suppose, successful development has general requirements, like stable and flexible government, free and available resources, and a diverse social organization of society. So, on the whole, social change is usually a combination of systematic factors along with some random or unique factors.
