Norms favoring the hereditary transmission of wealth will influence the development of institutionalized social inequality.
Three measures were used for norms favoring the hereditary transmission of wealth. Two had a directly significant correlation with the development of social inequality: real property unigeniture (direct effect size=0.918) and hereditary political succession (direct effect size=0.848). One, movable property unigeniture, was not significantly correlated (p>0.05).
