After I have conducted the same kind of descriptive statistics for the thousandth time I realized the world needs a simple tool to explore value levels across years and countries.
The tool is purely exploratory, don’t forget about comparability and measurement invariance problems. My website is hosted by WordPress which sucks in embedding stuff, so you have to click the link:
There are three tabs to explore trends by country, which allows comparison of value trends within each country, by value – to compare countries, and value map to see all the countries as points in the space of two higher order value dimensions. Point you mouse at country point on the value map to see how they moved during the measurement period.
Below are some screenshots.
