What are manifest functions, latent functions and dysfunctions?

Report as

Manifest functions refer to functions that are apparent, for instance, the manifest function of the military is to protect the nation. Latent functions are functions that are unrecognized; they may even be significant functions, but their end result is not clear. Dysfunctions on the other hand are negative consequences that may disrupt the system such as over population or pollution.
