CultureGrams® is a leading reference resource for reliable cultural information on the countries of the world.

It’s more important than ever to educate students about the world around them, and for college students and businesspeople to stay up to date. Diverse communities, well-traveled patrons and major global events have expanded each of our personal “world views” and increased our need for understanding a wide array of cultures.

No matter the user or their need, CultureGrams goes beyond basic facts and figures with local perspectives on more than 200 countries, detailing daily life and culture, including history, customs and lifestyles. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, each concise, reliable and up-to-date report is written and reviewed by local experts, providing users with unique, intimate cultural details from a real insider’s perspective.

World Edition contains primary-source reports on 209 countries and territories—including every United Nations member state—focusing on 25 cultural categories, including language, personal appearance, greetings, visiting, family, life cycle and more.

States and Provinces Editions feature colorful, easy-to-read reports that describe the diversity and history of each U.S. state, the District of Columbia and all 13 provinces of Canada. Each report includes maps, flags and symbols, as well as sections on history, economy, geography, population, indigenous peoples and recipes.

Kids Edition teaches upper-elementary- and middle school-age children more about the world around them. Each report contains images, historical timelines and fun facts, along with sections on history, population, “life as a kid,” games and sports, education and more.

Exclusive features include video clips and slideshows, a worldwide photo gallery, interviews with adults and children and a unique recipe collection with five local recipes for each country. Plus, infographics, create-your-own data tables and charts help put dozens of facts into perspective. Generate citations on the fly, play Text-to-Speech audio on demand or link text to Google Drive or Classroom with the click of a mouse.
