789. Schwartz Value Survey 1988-2005
Source: Schwartz, Shalom, H., The Hebrew University
The work of Schwartz and his more than 100 collaborators represents one of
the most important contributions in the area of current intercultural research.
It can be regarded as a crucial further development and extension of previous
approaches to comparative intercultural research with respect to the methodology
and theory. Most research based on the value theory has used the SVS instrument.
The dataset contributed by Schwartz to the ISDC contains 296 samples from more than
60 countries located on every inhabited continent (total N=75,148). The samples
include highly diverse groups as well as a few national or regional representative
samples. Multiple samples from the same society allow comparing within-culture to
between-culture variations in the empirical content of values and in the structure
of value relations. A detailed list of the samples is available in the dataset
package compiled by Moshe Berger. The Schwartz Value Survey contains 57 Items
which represent 10 value types on an individual level and 7 value orientations
on the cultural level. A Further description of Schwartz value theory and the
SVS instrument is available in the 3 listed publications and in dozens of other
works of Schwartz and his colleagues.

Source: International Social Survey Programme
The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) is an ongoing program of
cross-national collaboration. Formed in 1984, the multi-national group
develops topical modules dealing with important areas of social sciences as
national surveys and runs follow-up surveys on the same topic every few years.
The 2003 ISSP module is a replication of the 1995 module which was the first
to deal with National Identity.
The 2003 survey
was conducted in 33 countries
using a basic questionnaire that was translated to the associated languages.
The module asked respondents for their attitudes toward national vs. other
groups identity; toward immigration, globalization vs. local businesses;
international organizations decisions vs. local government's; regional vs.
national identity, role of national language; national pride; and more.
The ISSP Israeli research group is located in B. I. Cohen Institute for
Public Opinion Research at Tel-Aviv University and is led by Noah Lewin-Epstein.
Israel N=1218; Total N is above 44,000.
