  1. Higher status of the elderly will be associated with agricultural rather than exploitative economies, extended rather than nuclear family organization, inheritance of real property, and patrilocal rather than other residence patterns (270).Lee, Gary R. - Status of the elderly: economic and familial antecedents, 1984 - 5 Variables

    This article investigates how status of the elderly is affected by economic type, family organization, inheritance of real property, and unilocal residence patterns. Multivariate analysis ultimately suggests that agricultural economy, patrilocal residence, and fully extended family systems are significant predictors of higher status of the elderly. No major gender differences were discovered.

  2. Besides type of economy, ancestor worship, family structure, postmarital residence, and emphasis on conformity are all associated with status of the elderly (417-418)Ishii-Kuntz, Masako - Status of the elderly: an extension of the theory, 1987 - 5 Variables

    This article reassesses the cross-cultural work on status of the elderly and tests two additional variables, socialization values and ancestor worship, as predictors of the status of the elderly.

  3. The status of the elderly will be positively associated with unlineal descent, with a patrilineal system predicting high elderly male status and a matrilineal system predicting high elderly female status (432).Lee, Gary R. - Family structure and the status of the elderly: a preliminary empirical study, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the status of the elderly cross-culturally, proposing that familial complexity, unlineal descent, and unilocal residence are predictors of high status. The authors theorize that elderly male status will be highest in patrilineal and patrilocal societies; elderly female status will be highest in matrilineal and matrilocal societies. Some support is found for these patterns, but the authors ultimately regard them as too simple to adequately predict status of the elderly.

  5. Autonomy in mate selection will be negatively associated with the prevalence of extended families (323).Lee, Gary R. - Mate-selection systems and criteria: variation according to family structure, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationships between family structure, type of mate-selection system, and romantic love as a basis for mate-selection. Analysis indicates that autonomous mate selection is more common in societies with nuclear family structure and neolocal residence patterns. Romantic love as a basis for mate selection is also more common with nuclear family organization, but it is negatively associated with neolocal residence patterns.

  7. Women’s power in marriage will be associated with nuclear rather than extended family organization (124).Warner, Rebecca L. - Social organization, spousal resources, and marital power: a cross-cultural ..., 1986 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the effect of family structural complexity, residence and descent system, and female contribution to subsistence on women's power in marriage. Results suggest that wives have more power in marriage where there is nuclear family organization and matrilocality. The authors suggest that resource theory should broaden its conception of valued resources to include dimensions such as family organization patterns.

  8. Extended family will be positively associated with high status of the elderly (425)Balkwell, Carolyn - Subsistence economy, family structure and the status of the elderly, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This article explores factors affecting the status of the elderly, looking particularly at type of family, economy, and wealth transfer.

  9. Social complexityas measured by economy is positively associated with status of the elderly (413, 418)Ishii-Kuntz, Masako - Status of the elderly: an extension of the theory, 1987 - 2 Variables

    This article reassesses the cross-cultural work on status of the elderly and tests two additional variables, socialization values and ancestor worship, as predictors of the status of the elderly.

  10. Family complexity will be positively associated with socialization toward conformity (p. 393).Ellis, Godfrey J. - Supervision and conformity: a cross-cultural analysis of parental socializat..., 1978 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates child socialization toward obedience and conformity as a function of the supervision that parents experience in their own lives. Measures of economic, familial, political, and religious supervision in parents' lives are examined.
