This chapter applies the macro-sociological factor analysis to social security, which is based on external and internal factors that are relevant to the development and start of social security. These internal factors belong to the internal environment of society, and include political, demographic, and sociological factors. The external factors, on the other hand, are the international cultural transfers. Some examples of these are diffusion means, ideas, and the role of international organisations.
