Population estimation from floor area: a restudy of "naroll's constant"

Cross-Cultural Research Vol/Iss. 21 Published In Pages: 1-41
By Brown, Barton McCaul


A restudy of Naroll's (1962) measure of dwelling floor area using theory that it is predicted by the basic needs for protection from climate and crowding. This theory is not supported by the findings but Brown posits a new average for estimating floor area in dwellings based on his sample.
