On July 20, 2020 the World Values Survey Association announced the first release of the brand-new World Values Survey dataset (WVS-7, V1.0). Fieldwork for this 7th wave was conducted from mid-2017 to early-2020. This includes 77 countries and societies on all inhabited continents around the globe, ranging from Andorra, Argentina and Australia to the United States, Vietnam and Zimbabwe, as well as surveys conducted in collaboration with the European Values Study. In total, over 129,000 respondents were interviewed for this wave. Geographic coverage has also been expanded to several new countries included for the first time, such as Bolivia, Greece, Myanmar, Nicaragua, and Tajikistan. Further surveys -interrupted by the outbreak of the corona-virus- are planned for September 2020-May 2021. In total, together the WVS and the EVS plan to survey over 90 countries.
