it is a good teaching activity to pull this together as a class.

- Jon Fahlander and Rhys Jones presented on World Value Survey "light" data at the 2018 Stats Teachers' day in Auckland.
Their website includes country averages of the over 200 variables from the latest WVS (covering topics like happiness, religiosity, racism - ok with a neighbour of a different race, patriotism - willingness to fight for one's country, as well as GDP per capita).
The data is best suited for the bivariate NCEA standards and the idea is to make it easy for students to come up with their own unique research questions.
They have also included individual level data for each country, which might work for comparative box plots of, say, the distribution of happiness in NZ and Australia. An issue with that, however, is that the scales aren't continuous, but at best an ordinal scale from 1 to 10. So it might not suit the multivariate standards.
If you end up using any of this data, they would be really keen to hear how it went. They would also like to publish student work on the website.

- And an exemplar from a student from past years (as a guide only - it is not perfect).
