This paper provides current Schwartz Values Survey (SVS) data from samples of business managers and professionals across 50 societies that are culturally and socio-economically diverse. We report the society scores for SVS values dimensions for both individual-level and societal-level analyses. At the individuallevel, we report on the ten circumplex values sub-dimensions and two sets of values dimensions (collectivism and individualism; openness to change, conservation, self-enhancement, and selftranscendence). At the societal -level, we report on the values dimensions of embeddedness, hierarchy, mastery, affective autonomy, intellectual autonomy, egalitarianism, and harmony. For each society, we report the Cronbach’s statistics for each values dimension scale to assess their internal consistency (reliability) as well as report interrater agreement analyses to assess the acceptability of using aggregated individual level values scores to represent country values. We also examined whether societal development level is related to systematic variation in the measurement and importance of values. Thus, the contributions of our evaluation of the SVS values dimensions are two-fold. First, we identify the SVS dimensions that have cross-culturally internally reliable structures and within-society agreement for business professionals. Second, we report the society cultural values scores developed from 21st century data that can be used as macro-level predictors in multi-level and single-level international business research.
