Abstract: This report examines Geert Hofstede's theory and its potential empirical application in various European societies, using the securities data collected in Eurobarometer 98.2 (2023). Given the nature of the data, which were collected for other purposes, the analysis is exploratory and necessarily fragmentary. In relation to the exploratory application of other simpler models, Hofstede's model contains six dimensions defined on the basis of alternative subdimensions. Given that the number of values asked about in the questionnaire is limited, and they are also predefined, the increase in the variability to be measured has an impact on the ability to measure. A limitation that comes from the lack of variables that collect enough values to operationalize all dimensions.
