In four separate waves of fieldwork, Glocalities surveyed over 230,000 respondents in 32 countries and 23 languages. Taken together, this selection of countries contains 63% of the world population and represents 83% of the world economy. The global survey is held every year to ensure continuity of insights and facilitate the continuous development of the program.
In the first three waves, the survey has been conducted in: Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, France, Finland, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam.
In our latest 2019 wave, the survey has been conducted in 28 countries: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, Phillipines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UK, USA, and Vietnam.

The Glocalities research project was established in 2013 by Motivaction research agency in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We have over 20 years of experience with values-based segmentation in the Netherlands and the world. In preparation of the first Glocalities world survey in 2013, we conducted international qualitative research and consulted cross-cultural experts to identify a list of key items and formulate hypotheses. We used previously conducted international research to develop a hypothetical global segmentation model. We then tested and established the Glocalities values segmentation model in 2014 based on the data of the first wave of Glocalities fieldwork. We constructed the Glocalities segmentation model with latent class analysis, which resulted in 5 values segments. In later research, we validated the Glocalities segmentation model using cross-cultural scales from reputable international researchers of culture and values, such as Inglehart, Schwartz, and Trompenaars.
Glocalities currently employs a dedicated team of full-time researchers/consultants from different cultural backgrounds with expertise in cross-cultural values research, marketing research, strategy consultancy, and public communications.
