Re: inquiry re Hofstede's Culture dimensions

That link is utterly useless for providing you any assistance. Post a formula
or publicly available resource with actual information.  Your subject line
needs help too.  Normally that would simply be deleted as SPAM from a
moderator POV. Get real.

Re: inquiry

In reply to this post by moath Omiri

I hadn’t heard of Hofstede’s dimensions before, but it appears that each country has a value on 6 variables.

It should not be difficult to add these 12 values to the dataset.  All responses from one country would have the same value for the dimension (e.g. Power Distance=95 for all Saudi respondents and 35 for all UK respondents).

 

A simple option would be calculations (use whatever names you want for the dimensions—for simplicity, I just numbered them):

Do if Country=”Saudi Arabia”.

  Compute HD1=95.

  Compute HD2=25.

  Compute HD3=60.

  Compute HD4=80.

  Compute HD5=36.

  Compute HD6=52.

End if.

Do if Country=”UK”.

  Compute HD1=35.

  Compute HD2=89.

  Compute HD3=66.

  Compute HD4=35.

  Compute HD5=51.

  Compute HD6=69.

End if.

 

I would caution against using the country id in any analysis that uses any of the 6 Hofstede Cultural dimensions as they are 100% confounded.

As to Melissa's warning at the end, to put it more as I would say it -


With only two countries in the analysis, there is 100% confounding between

"country" and every one of the 6 variables.  There is /no/ information added by

including the dimension scores, once you account for "two countries" in any way.


With a few countries, you would want to keep track of the degrees of freedom

for "countries" compared to the number of Hofstede's dimensions you include,

or you could get statistical confounding of 100% in multi-variable analyses. When

there is not 100% confounding, there is still a potential for confounding, unless you

have a very large number of countries represented.
