The new 2022 World Cultural Map has been released
The World Values Survey Association is happy to present the next, updated version of the Inglehart-Welzel Cultural Map. The map is based on the latest joint survey round of the World Values Survey and European Values Study 2017-2022. For selected countries, not surveyed recently, data from earlier waves is used to calculate the map score. New countries added / updated in this version: Canada, Kenya, Latvia, Libya, Maldives, Mongolia, Morocco. Overall 110 countries / societies are represented on the map.
The cultural map methodology developed by the WVSA Founder Ronald Inglehart and the WVSA Vice-President Christian Welzel asserts that there are two major dimensions of cross cultural variation in the world: traditional values versus secular-rational values and survival values versus self-expression values. The global cultural map shows how scores of societies are located on these two dimensions.
More information about the theory and methodology behind the map design is available in the section "Findings and Insights" at the WVSA website. The final version of the map will be shared in late 2022, after the WVS-7 survey has been completed in a few more remaining countries.
