This model was ranked relative to the other five models of political organization according to their explanatory power.
|Maximum likelihood/Bayesian reversible-jump Markov chain Monte Carlo||Low support (ranked 4th/6)||UNKNOWN||UNKNOWN||UNKNOWN|
|Variable Name||Variable Type||OCM Term(s)|
|Political Organization||UNKNOWN||Social Stratification, Territorial Hierarchy|
