Analysis of WVS data made by political scientists Ronald Inglehart and 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 (below) shows how scores of societies are located on these two dimensions. Findings from the WVS demonstrate that mass self-expression values are extremely important in the emergence and flourishing of democratic institutions in a society.

"This collection of articles presents findings from the World Values Survey (WVS) and the European Values Surveys (EVS) . In planning the fourth wave of the World Values Survey, the Association set a high priority on attaining substantially better coverage of African countries and Islamic societies. As a result, the articles is this volume deal with the relationship between Islam and democracy, Islamic worldviews, culture and democratic institutions, and the changing role of gender.
The World Values Surveys grew out of a study launched by the European Values Survey group (EVS), which carried out surveys in ten West European societies in 1981; this project evoked such widespread interest that it was replicated in 14 additional countries. To monitor possible changes, a new wave of surveys was carried out in 1991, building on findings from the first wave, but this time designed to be carried out globally. Successive waves of surveys were carried out in 1995-96 and 1999-2001.
