  9. "Matrilineal descent is heavily concentrated in the Lower Middle range [of cultural complexity] with only a relatively negligible number of cases at other levels" (391)Murdock, George Peter - Measurement of cultural complexity, 1973 - 2 Variables

    This paper examines two measures of cultural complexity: Carneiro’s (1970) scale and codes assembled at the University of Pittsburg. Analysis suggests the two measures are compatible, thus providing evidence for their validity. The authors assess the usefulness of a cultural complexity scale by testing the relationship between descent rules and cultural complexity. Significant associations suggest that cultural complexity is related to social organization and is thereby a useful measure.
