In general, the scale of values among the Kazakhstan youth is quite traditional.

“Family” is valued most among the Kazakhstan youth, says head of the Research Centre “Youth” Talgat Kaliyev at the press conference in the Central Communications Service, BNews.kz correspondent reports.

“We have conducted research on values jointly with Russian State Social University. The research is about a system of values among the Kazakhstan and Russian youth. In general, following the scale of values, the Kazakhstan youth values “family” most (84%), the second in the list is “health” with 61.1%,” he said.

The research also revealed that “material success” among the Kazakhstan youth gained 23%, “love” – 17%, “knowledge and education”, “work and an interesting specialty” – 10%.

As Talgat Kaliyev underlined, such priorities as “Entertainment and life satisfaction” made up 3.9%, “Power” – 3.8%, “Public recognition, fame and reputation” – 1.6%.

“In general, the scale of values among the Kazakhstan youth is quite traditional and have the features of prosperous society. The question is whether there are correction mechanisms, and, of course, we have them and even more any society can reproduce these values, to generate them and adapt them under the ever-changing realities. Because, today we are influenced by global outlooks both eastern and western,” he said.
