A Cultural Values Interpretation for Societal Information Dissemination Capacity: An Exploratory Study

Auther : Omar E. M. Khalil
Ahmed A. S. Seleim

This research adopts the national cultural taxonomy of House et al. (2004) and information age statistics from the International Development Indicators of the World Bank (2004) to explore the relationship of national culture values to societal Information Dissemination Capacity (IDC). Hypotheses depicting relationships of power distance, uncertainty avoidance, future orientation, institutional collectivism, in-group collectivism, humane orientation, performance orientation, gender egalitarianism, and assertiveness to societal IDC were formulated and tested. Societies with high information dissemination capacities were found to have a pattern of low uncertainty avoidance values, low future orientation values, low institutional collectivism values, and high gender egalitarianism values. The findings of this research provide a proper foundation for further exploration of the possible influence of national culture values and practices on IDC as well the formulation of culturally-oriented policies and strategies aiming at expanding societal information dissemination capacities.
