  1. Personal responsibility for climate change will be positively associated with economic developmentJakucionyte-Skodiene, Migle - Climate change concern, personal responsibility and actions related to clima..., 2021 - 2 Variables

    In this article, the authors seek to understand the cultural and economic determinants of climate change concern and personal responsibility in climate change mitigation efforts. They do this by analyzing data on these topics drawn from survey participants from every European Union (EU) country. The paper is primarily concerned with cultural predictors (following Hofstede's (2001) cultural dimensions), levels of development, and personal impacts of climate change mitigation efforts.

  4. As individual responsibility increases, the economic development of a country will increase.Davis, Lewis - Individual responsibility and economic development: evidence from rainfall data, 2016 - 3 Variables

    Drawing from risk sharing theory, this paper used data from 89 countries to examine the relationship between historic rainfall variation (before 1900) and the emergence of collectivism in, assumed to be, preindustrial societies. Contemporary values of individualistic responsibilities were used under the assumption that they will reflect preindustrial values. Findings support the hypothesis that countries with greater rainfall variation will have less individualism than countries with less rainfall variation. The author then examined rainfall variation and individual responsibility as a proposed catalyst for economic development. Support was found that as individualism increased, so did the economic development of a country.

  7. Embeddedness will be positively associated with traditional views on gender roles (403)Lomazzi, Vera - Gender Role Attitudes in the International Social Survey Programme: Cross-Na..., 2020 - 2 Variables

    This study seeks to investigate the association between gender role attitudes and cultural values of embeddedness, hierarchy, and egalitarianism. After establishing approximate measurement equivalence, the authors ran correlations on data from 36 countries included in the latest edition of the International Social Survey Programme carried out in 2012. Results suggest that embeddedness and hierarchy are positively related to traditional gender role attitudes and egalitarianism is negatively related to traditional gender role attitudes.

  9. Changes in subsistence economy will be clustered temporally (453).Bradley, Candice - A cross-cultural historical analysis of subsistence change, 1990 - 1 Variables

    This study employs optimal scaling analysis to examine change in subsistence economy in a cross-cultural sample of 73 societies. Findings are discussed in addition to methodological considerations for sampling.
