Country Scores for Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions + Compare Countries
Siddhartha Bhattacharya, HR Consultant, India, 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 charts provide the scores per country on:
1. Power distance
2. Individualism
3. Masculinity versus femininity
4. Uncertainty avoidance
5. Long-term orientation
6. Indulgence.
 

 
Comparing Countries in Hofstede Model
PINAR MUTLU TURAN, Student (Other), Turkey, Member
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.
 

 
Comparing Countries on the 6 Dimension
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
Indeed that is a superb tool if you're interested in cultural characteristics of a country or in differences between countries. Great fun to play with. The URL has been changed and is now here.
Selecting a country will let you read a profile with explanation of the dimensions for that country. See what are your country's peculiarities.
You can also enter more than 1 country in the search box. This lets you compare 2 or more countries. See how your country compares with its neighbors or with the USA and China, etc.
