As previous EVS waves, the fifth wave maintains a persistent focus on a broad range of values. Questions with respect to family, work, religious, and political and societal values are highly comparable across waves and regions. The longitudinal scope of the study makes it possible to explore trends in time. The new wave has seen a strengthening of the Methodological standards (see https://europeanvaluesstudy.eu/methodology-data-documentation/survey-2017/methodology/), also thanks to the participation in the SERISS project (https://seriss.eu/).
