    Definition of Terms:

    Terms have been clarified as far as possible through the use of range statements. Further clarification of terms is provided as follows:
  • The term 'values' indicates those attitudes and objects which are held to be worthy and important and 'of value' to a person or a community. Values may be positive or negative.
  • The term 'lifestyles' applies to the modes and level at which a person lives. This is usually best discerned from the range and price of the person's most valued possessions.
