Hi everyone!
I am a grad student in psychology, and I am working on my dissertation
which contains data from 30+ countries. I have gotten some curious resutls,
and I am hoping some of you on this list can help me out.
The results I have obtained clustered several countries into 8 different
groups. I am trying to figure out what these groups have in common. If someone
out there could tell me what they think these groups share, I would sincerely
appreciate it! If there is a more appropriate place to ask this question,
please let me know! Thanks! The clusters are as follows:

Group 1: Belgium, Jordan, Sweden

Group 2: Austria, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand

Group 3: Bahrain, Bangladesh, Puerto Rico, Spain

Group 4: Cameroon, Canada, United States

Group 5: Egypt, Japan, Korea

Group 6: Finland, Israel, Thailand, Turkey

Group 7: Greece, Philippines, United Kingdom, Yugoslavia (data were collected
several years ago)

I will be happy to summarize the responses. Thanks in advance!
