The given paper presents the relevant problem of software design for social welfare researches oriented towards the life satisfaction and other psychology studies which are important for social development. The aim of this paper is to show most important issues which can complicate application of algorithms and software for social studies e.g. testing and interviewing results analysis. It summarizes the elements of the Data Mining concepts which are vital for processing big amount of complex data characterized with weak mathematical formalization (as results of sociological studies). This article also includes description of requirements for software systems meant to be implemented in social studies and names existing software decisions in order to show their limitations. This allows us to conclude that this software implementations can be expanded and coordinated by means of new information system, created especially for solving this problem.
