Chapter Summary

The study of human values has a long and distinguished tradition. The importance of the citizens' mindset for various spheres of social life has been recognized by thinkers going all the way to Ancient Greece. One only wishes, egotistically, that more societies could have been part of first round of European Values survey (EVS) and World Value survey (WVS). The second round of Values Surveys carried out around 1990 comprised no less than 43 societies from every corner of the globe and all major cultural traditions. The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) which started in the 1980s now covers a wide range of countries. The European Social Survey (ESS) is the most recent project (it was first fielded in 2002) and covers around 25 European countries. Both the ISSP and the ESS contain core questionnaires which are repeated in every round and, in addition, rotating modules on important topics.
