Social scientists and students use the Standard Cross-Cultural Sample to understand how human behavior, beliefs, and culture are affected by context and causality. To write research papers using the basic research tools of comparison -- statistics, graphics, and mapping -- included in the Spss software, both the software and the SCCS2020wMapCoord.sav SPSS datafile are installed on each of the three computers at the Langston Library ILC. A library URL with the codebook and Standard Cross-Cultural Sample links will provide the information needed by students to use the database with Spss. The data and codebook are in the public domain.
