This research note gives some information about the VASMA-project (i.e. comparative analysis of societal structures with mass data.) It was financed by a generous grant from Stiftung Volkswagenwerk, Hannover, between 1978 and 1986. The project has two central goals: First, to establish the methodological and technical infrastructure for secondary analysis of "mass data" for the wider use of the very large datasets primarily produced by the state statistical offices. The development of a series of computer programs made it possible to rearrange the different types of classifications and tabulations from official statistics since 1875. Second, on this data basis the project made efforts to advance the empirical investigation of societal structure by means of historical and international comparisons. In this note it is reported about the historical comparative reserach in three directions: 1. Structural changes and the development of the employment system. 2. The connection between social modernization and the organizational change of from-structure. 3. Changes in the segregation of occupations between sexes. These three reserach-centers were investigated mostly in the period between 1875 and 1980. Here, only the main questions, the lines of argumentation and some of the most important results are presented. Furthermore central literature of the project is cited.
