Society is an organization. It has at its disposal resources that are present in an amount more or less satisfactory and whose distribution may be more or less maximize. Here is a brief description of these resources.
All territorial societies have access to natural resources. The quantity and quality of these resources vary from one community to another. Those are usually well known by the leaders of the collectivities.
Citizens are naturally the most important societal resource. Without them, society would not exist. There are several types of citizens and these need to be quantified, qualified and identified.
The term abstract resources is a concept used here to represent the sum of all knowledge, concepts, social constructions, etc., present on the territory. These resources can facilitate the development of citizens or groups of citizens and facilitate or impede the operation of the collectivity.
The development of abstract resources and their application to natural resources have enabled us to create new objects ranging from clothing to transportation, agriculture to medicine, and housing to educational institutions. What is available or not to the collectivity has an importance on the quality of life of the citizens and on the operation of the collectivity.
