  1. There will be a negative association between male transvestism and the couvade (52).Munroe, Robert L. - Male transvestism and the couvade: a psycho-cultural analysis, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This article examines institutionalized male transvestism and the couvade, finding that they are mutually exclusive in a cross-cultural sample. Possible explanations for the negative association between male transvestism and the couvade (e.g. sex-identity differentiation and confusion) are discussed.

  2. Agricultural subsistence activity is associated with male contribution to subsistence (283).Martin, M. Kay - Female of the species, 1975 - 3 Variables

    This book discusses the role of women cross-culturally. The authors use a cross-cultural sample to examine the differences between men and women in contribution to subsistence as well as the social juxtaposition of the sexes in foraging, horticultural, agricultural, pastoral, and industrial societies.

  3. "Societies that maximize sex distinctions will not have institutionalized male transvestism; conversely, societies that make minimum use of sex as a discriminating factor in prescribing behavior and membership will have institutionalized male transvestism" (88)Munroe, Robert L. - Institutionalized male transvestism and sex distinctions, 1969 - 2 Variables

    This study attempts to replicate earlier findings regarding transvestism using a larger sample and a different index of sex distinctions. It is asserted that societies that maximize sex distinctions will not have institutionalized male transvestism.

  6. Male contribution to subsistence will be positively associated with female fertility (756, 758).Marlowe, Frank W. - Male contribution to diet and female reproductive success, 2001 - 2 Variables

    This article seeks to understand male-female bonding by testing the relationship between male contribution to subsistence (a proxy for male provisioning) and female reproductive success in foraging societies. Analysis supports a positive association.

  7. Social differentiation will be positively associated with other types of inequality among different types of foraging economies. (52)Frederic L. Pryor - Economic Systems of Foraging, Agricultural, and Industrial Societies, 2005 - 9 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.

  8. Wives’ power will be positively associated with wives’ proportionate contribution to subsistence (28, 31-2).Lee, Gary R. - Conjugal power and spousal resources in patriarchal cultures, 1983 - 2 Variables

    This article reviews theories of marital power and tests for a relationship between wives’ contribution to subsistence and their conjugal power in patriarchal cultures. Results indicate a positive association. The role of cultural complexity is also considered; its relationship with wives’ power is negative and linear while its relationship with wives’ contribution to subsistence is negative and non-linear.
