Changing values among western publics from 1970 to 2006

Publication Abstract

Inglehart, Ronald F. 2008. "Changing values among western publics from 1970 to 2006." West European Politics, 31(1-2): 130-146.

In 1971 it was hypothesised that intergenerational value changes were taking place. More than a generation has passed since then, and today it seems clear that the predicted changes have occurred. A large body of evidence, analysed using three different approaches -(1)cohort analysis; (2) comparisons of rich and poor countries; (3) examination of actual trends observed over the past 35 years - all points to the conclusion that major cultural changes are occurring, and that they reflect a process of intergenerational change linked with rising levels of existential security.
