Data Dissemination

The World Values Survey data is publicly available for free and has been downloaded by over 100,000 researchers, journalists, policy-makers and others. The data is available on the WVS website which contains tools developed for online analysis.

The current site offers data at three different levels:

  • Country level: Individual surveys data and documentation can now be downloaded for the dfferent waves.
  • Wave level: Aggregated files and documents merging the different participating countries is the usual option for researchers that want to compare results among different countries.
  • Longitudinal level: At this level all waves are merged and integrated documentation seeks documentng time series. It is the choice for those analyzing trends.
