In modern society not only traffic's physical speed but also "social speed", the time required to attain a goal, has been speeding up in all aspects of social life. This has had an impact on our lives in many ways. The fundamental perception and aim of this research lies in examining the relationship between this social speed and the phenomena of various social diseases. In this interim report we measured and investigated an index of a variety of social speed. Then we conducted a trial calculation of "index of social speed", which amounts to a general index of social speed. (Author/TRRL)
