  1. Foraging economy type (Classic, transitional, human-wealth oriented, intangible-wealth oriented, politically oriented, and physical-wealth oriented) will be associated with certain social structural characteristics (50).Frederic L. Pryor - Economic Systems of Foraging, Agricultural, and Industrial Societies, 2005 - 13 Variables

    The second and third parts of this book classify the economic systems of foraging and agricultural societies in the SCCS based on correlations between their institutions of property an distribution. These economic types are then examined for relationships with other social, political, demographic, and environmental factors in order to draw tentative conclusions regarding the origins of the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. The fourth part of the book uses cross-national data to examine similar associations in industrial/service economies, and is not included here.

  2. Agricultural economy type (Herding-Plus, Egalitarian, Individualistic, or Semi-Marketized) will be associated with the presence of certain political institutions. (116)Frederic L. Pryor - Economic Systems of Foraging, Agricultural, and Industrial Societies, 2005 - 15 Variables

  3. Zelman's (1974) index of private ownership will have the same sign as the correlation with Murdock's (1967) index of private ownership and both will have a null probability of p<.05.Rudmin, Floyd Webster - Cross-cultural correlates of the ownership of private property: Zelman's gen..., 1996 - 23 Variables

    This article analyzes the predictors of private property ownership with an aim to replicate existing correlations using data from the dissertation of Zelman (1974).

  4. Several hypotheses are tested.Sanday, Peggy Reeves - Female power and male dominance: on the origins sexual inequality, 1981 - 1 Variables

    This book explores the factors that affect sexual inequality. The author first focuses on the symbolic representations of a culture's "sex-role plan," or how male and female power is scripted in different societies. The author then tests the relationships bewteen sexual inequality and variables like subsistence strategy, division of labor, and menstrual and sex taboos. The bases of female power and the rise of male dominance are also discussed.

  5. Hypermasculine behaviors will be positively associated with indicators of masculinist ideologyChick, Garry - Making men of them: male socialization for warfare and combative sports, 2001 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the phenomenon of hypermasculine behavior and a masculine ideology cross-culturally to determine to what degree socialization stimulates this aggressive behavior in some groups and not others.

  6. "When some form of instruction is offered, Type II [deliberate instruction by non-kin without change of of residence] is employed by extended and nuclear societies, . . ." (319)Herzog, John D. - Deliberate instruction and household structure: a cross-cultural study, 1962 - 3 Variables

    This study examines relationships among the instruction of children, household type and size, and political integration. Particular attention is paid to type of instruction--whether the instructor is kin or non-kin, and whether the instruction requires a change in the child's residence. Different types of instruction are theorized to solve problems for children in different household types (e.g. children in mother-child households experience gender identity conflict, and so leave their houses for instruction from non-kin). The causality between instruction and societal complexity is also discussed.

  7. Marriage payments, patrilineal descent, patrilocal residence, extended family forms and importance of inheritance rules will be positively associated with sexual dominance (679)Johnson, G. David - A cross-cultural test of Collins’ theory of sexual stratification, 1982 - 6 Variables

    This article tests Randall Collin's 1975 theory that political-economic factors, rather than family/kinship factors, predict the degree of sexual stratification in a given society. A multivariate model is tested and findings contradict the theory.

  8. Males will pursue riskier gambles than females (350).Gray, Peter B. - Evolutionary and cross-cultural perspectives on gambling, 2004 - 2 Variables

    This study uses evolutionary theory to hypothesize about the association between age, gender, and gambling. Results suggest that males are more frequent and riskier gamblers than females and that young adults are more likely to have gambling problems than people of other age classes.

  9. "The table shows that nuclear household societies with a high degree of complexity do not involve their women in subsistence pursuits, and at the same time employ Type II instruction [deliberate instruction by non-kin without change of residence]; it shows the reverse for nuclear societies with low complexity" (332)Herzog, John D. - Deliberate instruction and household structure: a cross-cultural study, 1962 - 4 Variables

    This study examines relationships among the instruction of children, household type and size, and political integration. Particular attention is paid to type of instruction--whether the instructor is kin or non-kin, and whether the instruction requires a change in the child's residence. Different types of instruction are theorized to solve problems for children in different household types (e.g. children in mother-child households experience gender identity conflict, and so leave their houses for instruction from non-kin). The causality between instruction and societal complexity is also discussed.

  10. There will be more societies in which males gamble than societies in which females gamble (350).Gray, Peter B. - Evolutionary and cross-cultural perspectives on gambling, 2004 - 2 Variables

    This study uses evolutionary theory to hypothesize about the association between age, gender, and gambling. Results suggest that males are more frequent and riskier gamblers than females and that young adults are more likely to have gambling problems than people of other age classes.
