  • A study or analysis that compares two or more different cultures. It can involve research conducted in a particular discipline that examines the effect of culture on behavior or behavior observed within and between communities, in addition to varying beliefs and institutions. Community members have similar practices, beliefs, values, social roles, expressions, and norms; these factors result in community cohesion. Such factors are interrelated with historical context and the physical and social environments in which people reside. Cross-cultural research allows social anthropologists to compare and contrast these various social elements and examine commonalities and contradictions across both different and similar cultures of varying time periods.
