The Laboratory for Comparative Social Research (LCSR) studies norms and values at the international level, which includes comparing data within regions and classes in Russia as well as between Russia and other countries. It also analyzes and compares the results of different waves of World Value Survey. The key goal of the Laboratory for Comparative Social Research is the evolution of quantitative comparative studies and instrumental analytical methods of large data sets in Russia.
The LCSR was established in the Higher School of Economics, a National Research University, in November 2010. The focus of the research is on comparative studies of social change – the analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinal data based on World Values Survey (WVS) data. The WVS study includes about 100 countries all over the world. The participants in this project are numerous research centers and scientists across the globe. The academic supervisor of the LCSR, Ronald F. Inglehart is also the founder and the president of the World Value Survey organization during 1988-2013. Christian Welzel, an LCSR professor, is President (emer.) and Vice-President of World Values Survey Association, Stockholm (Sweden).
