Abstract

We provides current Schwartz Values Survey (SVS) data for workforce samples from 50 countries across a diversity of cultural contexts. We focus upon the societal-level of constructs (conservatism/embededness, intellectual autonomy, affective autonomy, hierarchy, egalitarianism, mastery, and harmony), because these are the newest and least tested. For each country, we report the Cronbach alpha statistics to assess the internal validity, and thus the utility of the various dimensions. A contribution of this assessment of societal values is to identify the degree to which these SVS measures may be valid as macro-level predictor variables in future cross-cultural research endeavors.
