There is variability in residence patterns for hunter-gatherer and horticulturalist societies.
Helm's measure is the sum of all adult primary kin living with an average man divided by the sum of all primary kin living with both an average man and an average woman. Helm's measure averages 0.53 for hunter-gatherer societies and 0.46 for horticulturalist societies.
