A pattern of life is an observable manifestation of an underlying regularity in human behavior. The operation of social mechanisms provided in this report explain how such manifestations can depend on the activities and interactions of individuals. Diagrams and other representational models are shown throughout this report to help bring an understanding of the workings of such mechanisms and their relationships to the patterns of life that they are responsible for. Additionally, this report focuses on approaches to understand and measure the regularity of the responsible mechanisms.
