In Itanes 2006 survey, voters' values were investigated through the social values model proposed by the social psychologist Shalom Schwartz (1992, 1994). The chapter at first deals with what the values are (ingredients of ideology or motivational goals), which types of values can be found, and how they can be measured. Then, the chapter tests whether the measures used in Itanes 2006 survey match with the compatibility and incompatibility structure expected according to the Schwartz's model. Afterwards, the chapter investigates the hierarchy of values, e.g. the relative importance associated with each value type, and their links with voters' sociodemographic variables such as gender, age, educational level, and religiosity. Finally, the chapter analyzes how values are linked with voters' political self-definition, with their attitude toward immigrants, and with their voting choice.
