The Danish values survey (Den danske værdiundersøgelse) 1981-2017
The Values survey is the Danish part of an international comparative questionnaire project: The European Values Survey (EVS) which has been carried out in a long list of countries in Europe since 1981. Download survey here.
The Values survey uses almost identical questionnaires in all countries where it is conducted, which provides immediately comparable data from a long list of countries divided across many different periods of time.
The Values survey covers a wide spectrum of values, but namely, it is about religion, work, politics, family and overall moral values.
Using the values survey
The Values survey allows for the formulation and testing of hypotheses on a number of topics such as the following:
- The development and character of values in individual sectors, equivalent to societal institutions. In that connection, the studies of changes in value are connected to the development of the relevant societal institutions.
- The differences in values and the changes in values in various parts of the population. In both cases, the questions can be studied within a Danish context or via comparisons with other countries.
