Hierzu werden nun zunächst die Begriffe der Klasse und Schicht genauer beschrieben und zudem erklärt, wie sie die sozialen Strukturen von Gesellschaften kennzeichnen. Im Anschluss daran geht die Arbeit genauer auf den Begriff des Milieus ein, beziehungsweise auf den des Milieukonzepts. Weiter wird dann der „Übergang“ vom Klassen-, Schichtmodell hin zum Milieukonzept näher erläutert. Hierbei werden zunächst die Unterschiede dieser beiden Modelle genauer beschrieben, bevor Kritik am Klassen- beziehungsweise Schichtmodell geäußert wird und die Vorteile des Milieukonzepts hervorgehoben werden. Dieser Aufbau wurde gewählt, um besonders anschaulich zu machen, weshalb es überhaupt eine „Entwicklung“ oder einen „Übergang“ von den einen Modellen zum anderen Konzept gegeben hat. Danach wird in diesem textual content die Entwicklung vom Klassen-, Schichtmodell hin zum Milieumodell beschrieben. Zum Abschluss widmet sich die Arbeit der Frage, ob die Klassen- und Schichtmodelle tatsächlich vom Milieukonzept abgelöst wurden und es womöglich sogar damit zu einer Auflösung dieser Modelle gekommen ist beziehungsweise kommen wird.
