World Values Survey

The World Values Survey measure the state of sociocultural, moral, religious, and political values of different countries around the world. It is the most comprehensive database in this field ( number of indicators, countries and the longitudinal depth). One of the many findings taken from WVS database, and very popular in the press, is the Perception of Happiness. Another well known result is the Inglehart-Welzel Map: countries are mapped following the two dimension "traditional vs. secular-rational" and "survival vs. self-expression".
