Trance types will be associated with societal characteristics (47-68).


Variables significant at the 0.001 level: settlement pattern, stratification, slavery, jurisdictional hierarchy beyond the local level, estimated size of population, kin groups, mode of marriage, and cousin marriage. Variables significant at the 0.05 level: mean size of local community, family form, marriage form, and segregation of adolescent boys. Variables significant at the 0.10 level: matrilineal vs patrilineal succession to office of local headman. Highest association (0.4453) between trance types and estimated size of population. Lowest association (0.1878) for marriage form. (for more information on this topic, see Bourguignon's additional publications)
