Abstract: Abstract This study proposes an analysis of the influence of the Brazilian cultural features on the federal public employees of Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE), which is “the main data provider” in Brazil. Specifically, it is intended to perform a cultural analysis of the Brazilian regions – North, Northeast, Southeast, South and Mid-West -, justified by its dimension and plurality. The data were collected from 464 IBGE’s employee’s respondents, in Brazil, from the questionnaire VSM-2013 proposed by Hofstede (2018). Hofstede’s dimensions of national culture have been used: the results point to a confirmation of the indexes obtained by the model of cultural mapping, when applied to Brazil. Besides that, it is possible to verify the occurrence of variations according to the Brazilian region that is been analyzed, indicating the existence of subcultures.
