Country Scores for Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions + Compare Countries
Siddhartha Bhattacharya, Member
A very good way to understand the Framework & put it into perspective & practice is provided at the following webpage. It provides for a thorough insight into cultures and behaviour trends which may be generalized for that nation's population and is also helpful for anyone who is looking to relocate.
The country scores on the dimensions are relative - societies are compared to other societies. Without making a comparison, a country score is meaningless.
The acronyms in the charts mean:
PDI - Power distance
IDV - Individualism versus collectivism
MAS - Masculinity versus femininity
UAI - Uncertainty avoidance
LTO - Long-term versus short-term orientation
The 6th Dimension (Indulgence versus Restraint), has not (yet) been added.

Comparing Countries in Hofstede Model
Thank you for the information. It was very beneficial for me to use in my thesis.
I was not aware of the new dimensions that were added recently. Now I will be able to go deeper into these as well.
Best regards from Turkey.
