In psychology, multicultural refers to the interaction of different cultural influences on an individual or community. Cross-cultural is a study of the differences between specific cultural groups.



Cross-cultural research is a scientific method of comparative research which focuses on systematic comparisons that compares culture to culture and explicitly aims to answer questions about the incidence, distributions, and causes of cultural variation and complex problems across a wide domain, usually worldwide.
