Individualism vs Collectivism

A cross-country data on individualism vs collectivism (regarded as the most important cultural cleavage by cross-culture psychologists: see Steve J. Heine (2008) Cultural psychology. W. W. Norton & Company) is constructed by
Geert Hofstede. Culture’s Consequences: Comparing Values, Behaviors, and Organizations Across Nations. 2nd edition. Sage Publications, 2001.
and the version subsequently updated is available at the author's website.

Used by Gorodnichenko and Roland (2010), to estimate the impact of individualism on innovation, and by Gorodnichenko and Roland (2013) "Culture, Institutions, and Democratization", to estimate the impact on democratization.
