Major changes can be observed in the strategy of development of social services in the socialist countries. These changes are prompted by such major factors in development of social services as changes in the structure of professionally active population, investment policy, and expenditure on social services from the state budget. Improvement in accessibility and quality of social services will depend in the future primarily on modernity of the structure and effectiveness of the national economy. A further conclusion drawn on the basis of the analysis of statistical data from 8 countries for the period 1950-1985 (Bulgaria, Czecho-slovakia, GDR, Hungary, Poland, Rumania, Yugoslavia and USSR) is a statement about the necessity of: 1) such increase in investment outlays on the social services sphere, which will outpace the rate of these outlays in the entire national economy, and 2) much more effective use of resources in this sphere.
