Beyond-household sharing will be more habitual in societies with greater resource stress.
Supported for frequent types of food and labor sharing (except for daily sharing). Limited food sharing information led coders to examine the following OCM variables: daily routine (512), household (592), and community structure (621). Also, when there was limited labor sharing information, coders examined food quest (220), annual cycle (221), animal husbandry (230), agriculture (240), exchange transactions (437), and daily routine (512).
