Urbanization was moving at a rapid pace, although in the US there were difficulties with the issue of employment. Los Angeles was associated with a higher level of crime. Also, the economy experienced difficult times from 1970-1980, 80% of the population could not afford a home purchase, and New Yorkers believed that the most important thing was to be born into a rich family. Over the past 30 years, this concept has become obsolete and now everyone believes that hard work will bear fruit. The number of entrepreneurs who prefer to work for themselves increased. Also, in the work of Social Changes, the paragraph on same-sex marriages is being considered. If earlier it was forbidden by the law, now the society refers to this with understanding and many states have abolished this law, which also speaks about the change in the morals of US residents. There are several changes that have occurred over the last century with respect to housing and social norms both in the United States and the United Kingdom.
