  1. "Political communities that have different value systems are more likely to regulate warfare more successfully than those with similar value systems" (163)Tefft, Stanton K. - Warfare regulation: a cross-cultural test of hypotheses among tribal peoples, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests "theories which suggest that there are causal-functional relationships between the dependent variables peacemaking and peace stability on the one hand and certain independent variables, such as political complexity, warrior class, warfare objectives, cultural homology and intersocietal ties, on the other hand." Significant relationships were found between the last three independent variables.

  3. "The more numerous the economic, religious or social ties between political communities, the more likely they will institutionalize peacemaking procedures" (165)Tefft, Stanton K. - Warfare regulation: a cross-cultural test of hypotheses among tribal peoples, 1974 - 2 Variables

  5. "Political communities with professional soldiers whose special function it is to wage war will be less likely to develop institutionalized peacemaking procedures" (160)Tefft, Stanton K. - Warfare regulation: a cross-cultural test of hypotheses among tribal peoples, 1974 - 2 Variables

  6. "The more frequently political communities or political alliances fight for politico-economic objectives (subjugation, tribute, land, plunder), the less likely they will negotiate peace (use mediation, arbitration, direct negotiation)" (157)Tefft, Stanton K. - Warfare regulation: a cross-cultural test of hypotheses among tribal peoples, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests "theories which suggest that there are causal-functional relationships between the dependent variables peacemaking and peace stability on the one hand and certain independent variables, such as political complexity, warrior class, warfare objectives, cultural homology and intersocietal ties, on the other hand." Significant relationships were found between the last three independent variables.

  7. "As the level of political complexity increases, the more stable the peace which terminates the war" (159)Tefft, Stanton K. - Warfare regulation: a cross-cultural test of hypotheses among tribal peoples, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests "theories which suggest that there are causal-functional relationships between the dependent variables peacemaking and peace stability on the one hand and certain independent variables, such as political complexity, warrior class, warfare objectives, cultural homology and intersocietal ties, on the other hand."

  8. "Political communities which terminate war by diplomatic negotiations are likely to initiate war by announcement or mutual arrangement" (39)Otterbein, Keith F. - The evolution of war: a cross-cultural study, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This book investigates the evolution of military organizations and their activities. Hypotheses frequently relate military organizations to political variables. Data suggested that more politically centralized societies have more sophisticated military organizations which are more likely to be successful in conflict (though military sophistication does not appear to deter attack).

  9. Peace-related cultural variables will be more strongly developed within peace systems than within war systems.Fry, Douglas P. - Societies within peace systems avoid war and build positive intergroup relat..., 2021 - 10 Variables

    In this article, the authors explore cultural variables that they propose contribute to the maintenance of peace in non-warring societies. These variables are compared in 16 peaceful systems (as coded by the authors from anthropological and historical data) and in 30 warring societies taken from the Standard Cross-Cultural Sample (SCCS). Findings associate more peaceful cultures with peace systems, and non-peaceful cultures with warring societies.

  10. There is no correlation between the frequency of the LCT*-13910T allele and populations for which cattle breeding is common (401).Borinskaya, S. A. - Combination of Genetic and Humanitarian (Cross-Cultural) Methods for the Ide..., 2015 - 2 Variables

    Researchers used population samples from the ALFRED database and the Human Genome Diversity Project (HGDP), in conjunction with 68 populations from the Ethnographic Atlas, in an attempt to identify specific genes involved in human adaptation to environmental stimuli as a result of migration. Specifically, researchers looked at the allele frequencies for four different genes typically associated with varying subsistence forms. These four included the APOE apolipoprotein E gene (lipid transport and regulation of cholesterol), LCT lactase gene (enzyme that decomposes lactose), CCR5 chemokine receptor gene (deletion mutation that decreases immunodeficiency virus propagation), and the ADH1B alcohol dehydrogenase gene (important enzyme for alcohol metabolism). The allele frequencies were then analyzed to distinguish any possible correlation to economic-culture types using a two-sided Spearman Test. Researchers also ran a similar test to analyze allele frequencies and pathogen load, however the majority of the findings were not statistically significant. The findings suggest that there is a definite relationship between the allele frequencies and type of economy of a population.
