Issue Development

With the rapid advancement of science and technology, the overall economic and social environment is undergoing dramatic changes and both the country and the society have encountered multiple challenges. The depth and breadth of social issues nowadays have surpassed the past. How to identify the common needs of general public and their priorities in such diverse and complex challenges becomes crucial.

Therefore, STPI’s Issue Development Team launched “Top 100 social issues in Taiwan” research project in 2018 . The Team scientifically prioritized top 100 most-concerned social issues in Taiwan using the way of online opinion polls to establish a systematic issue framework. The research is supplemented by qualitative and quantitative analysis methodologies for scientific evidence. The ultimate goal of the research is to help the government focus on the most critical and concerned issues while the resources are relatively limited and to provide the government with influential reference for policy planning and implementation.
