In the area of comparative value research some studies deal with societal factors like socioeconomic development influencing values (e.g. Inglehart). Other analyses focus on individual factors like social stratification (e.g. Kohn & Schooler). However, it lacks research taking into account societal- and individual-factors within a multilevel framework. This paper applies multilevel confirmatory factor analysis with covariates (Muthén & Muthén 2010) to explain differences in the priority of power- and achievement-values at both levels. Some advantages using this kind of analysis for comparative research are demonstrated, e.g. testing cross-country- and cross-level invariances.
