  1. Gerontocide will be associated with nomadism (515).Maxwell, Robert J. - Gerontocide, 1989 - 2 Variables

    This chapter examines correlates of gerontrocide. Previously suggested predictors, such as nomadism and harsh climate, were not found to be associated with gerontrocide, but data suggested that several other variables such as social stratification, subsistence type, and rule of descent, are significant predictors.

  2. "The esteem in which the aged are held in a given society varies directly with the degree of control they maintain over the society's informational resources" (381).Maxwell, Robert J. - Information and esteem: cultural considerations in the treatment of the aged, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the treatment of the aged in different societies. Support was found for the hypothesis that the amount information controlled by the aged is positively associated with the degree of esteem in which they are held by other members of the society.

  9. Among independent families, there is an association between respect for the elderly and their socially valued activities (320).McArdle, Joan L. - Respect for the elderly in preindustrial societies as related to their activity, 1981 - 3 Variables

    This article examines the relationship between respect for the elderly and their socially valued activities. Support is found for this association under certain conditions: it is significant with independent families in societies with no belief in a single god and absence of slavery. Theories of disengagement and activity among the elderly are also discussed, and the authors propose that they be considered as a continuum.
