Descriptive Analysis of American Culture, Values, and Beliefs
Ningxin Li

Culture is a term that can be described as many different inter-related meanings according to the characteristics of a group of people who share similar beliefs and values (Datesman & Kearny, 2005). The aim of a quantitative study is to classify and count statistics, and to interpret the data in relation to the research problem under investigation. This research will give a brief overview of the cultural values of Americans. The research process includes collecting variables and evaluating measurements. This research quantitatively examines Americans’ culture, values, and beliefs, such as their religious preference, educational choice, preferable number of children, number of hours worked per week, sex values, and family income situations, and to see if these variables represent Americans’ views. This research will explore the differences of ideas between Americans and their views towards different issues, as well as to discover facts about their beliefs and preferences in their lives. This analysis will enhance the understanding of shared cultures and promote communication for people who come from different backgrounds.
