This paper empirically examines the causal relationships that occur between the values and attitudes that children learn during the process of socialization and the developmental process, which has taken place in Spain and the United States. When learned at an early age, values and attitudes such as responsibility, imagination, or perseverance constitute an important support for the future developmental processes of a society, if taken globally as extended values among a country's population. The data for this analysis came from the 1995 World Values Survey. The dependent variable in the causal analysis is the tendency in each of these countries towards the service sector. As independent variables we have used family values and attitudes, as well as structural characteristics of families and the various values taught to kids within the home. The varying effects of socialization on development were studied through principal components analysis, and also path analysis. The conclusions manifest that the different values taught in the two countries in their processes of socialization determine differing degrees and levels of development.
