    This study examined relations between a measure of identification with Australia and scores on 10 value types for a sample of 213 male and female university students who identified themselves as Australians. The 10 value types involved sets of values from die Schwartz Value Survey. Results of correlational and regression analyses showed that identification with Australia was positively related to the importance of values classified into the hedonism, security, and achievement value types. Relations were also examined between identification and more abstract value dimensions. It was proposed that the values linked positively (or negatively) with national identification are likely to be those that are seen to be either fulfilled (or obstructed) by the culture. 1994 Australian Psychological Society
