The major determinants of centric transfers of labor are the level of economic development and the size of the units of observation in the society (305).
Centricity refers to the degree to which the transfers are patterned to focus on either an institution or an individual carrying out a society-wide role (centric transfers) or to focus on the relationship between distinct pairs of individuals who are not tied in their transactions to a societal-wide pattern (non-centric patterns) (34).
