World Values Survey
October 25, 2013 - 10:21:15
Started in 1981, the World Values Survey is an ambitious worldwide investigation of sociocultural and political change being conducted by an international network of social scientists at universities across the globe.

The survey shows that the basic direction of these changes is, to some extent, predictable. Following from this intriguing (and perhaps contestable) thesis, the website provides access to a number of the publications that have been generated from the group's scholarship, along with information about ordering various monographs and other publications.
