Abstract/Description:
In today’s society, different age groups seem to think and behave differently. Generational differences have influenced many controversial opinions discussed today. Not much research has been conducted on these differences, but in the studies which have been conducted, it has been concluded that there are substantial differences that exist between generations. In the limited amount of research that has been conducted, the sample was relatively small, making the survey incomprehensive. In order to understand these differences and where the opinions of generations differ, we developed an online survey about people’s opinions on controversial issues debated about in modern society. We found that there are statistically significant differences between age groups and their views on social issues such as religion, sex before marriage, same sex marriage, and abortion. Our results have shown that people are beginning to move away from the more traditional values and into more liberal viewpoints.
