Research Purpose, Procedures, and Demographics

INTRODUCTION

This research project analyzes people's cultural, family, and workplace values and their perceptions of various political economy issues in eight countries with different socioeconomic and political systems. In addition, the demographics of respondents and of participating countries are analyzed as they relate to people's values and attitudes. This extensive multicultural information provides important insights about significant differences in people's values and their perceptions of major socioeconomic and political issues at the local, national, and international levels. The research data are analyzed from multidisciplinary perspectives in that the research group consists of scholars from a number of disciplines. Moreover, these scholars represent different socioeconomic and political systems.

The sample data primarily include values and perceptions of issues of university students representing multiple disciplines, although in selected countries, a smaller sample of data, relating to industry and government personnel, is included. A profile of respondents is analyzed for possible relationships between values and demographic attributes. Also, possible relationships between people's values and their perceptions of issues are explored.

The group of faculty scholars from each participating country analyzed all of the responses and developed preliminary observations about the data relating to their own country's respondents, as well as respondents from each of the other countries. These separate observations were discussed at several meetings of the total research group, and the general results of these discussions are reflected in this book.

This research is important for two major reasons. One, a large amount of empirical data is compiled and analyzed about people's values
