  5. Social complexityas measured by economy is positively associated with status of the elderly (413, 418)Ishii-Kuntz, Masako - Status of the elderly: an extension of the theory, 1987 - 2 Variables

    This article reassesses the cross-cultural work on status of the elderly and tests two additional variables, socialization values and ancestor worship, as predictors of the status of the elderly.

  6. Higher status of the elderly will be associated with agricultural rather than exploitative economies, extended rather than nuclear family organization, inheritance of real property, and patrilocal rather than other residence patterns (270).Lee, Gary R. - Status of the elderly: economic and familial antecedents, 1984 - 5 Variables

    This article investigates how status of the elderly is affected by economic type, family organization, inheritance of real property, and unilocal residence patterns. Multivariate analysis ultimately suggests that agricultural economy, patrilocal residence, and fully extended family systems are significant predictors of higher status of the elderly. No major gender differences were discovered.

  7. Besides type of economy, ancestor worship, family structure, postmarital residence, and emphasis on conformity are all associated with status of the elderly (417-418)Ishii-Kuntz, Masako - Status of the elderly: an extension of the theory, 1987 - 5 Variables

    This article reassesses the cross-cultural work on status of the elderly and tests two additional variables, socialization values and ancestor worship, as predictors of the status of the elderly.

  8. The status of the elderly will be positively associated with familial structural complexity (432).Lee, Gary R. - Family structure and the status of the elderly: a preliminary empirical study, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the status of the elderly cross-culturally, proposing that familial complexity, unlineal descent, and unilocal residence are predictors of high status. The authors theorize that elderly male status will be highest in patrilineal and patrilocal societies; elderly female status will be highest in matrilineal and matrilocal societies. Some support is found for these patterns, but the authors ultimately regard them as too simple to adequately predict status of the elderly.

  9. The presence of old age distinctions and death-hastening behavior will be associated with less complex societies. The presence of supportive treatment of the aged wil be associated with more complex societies (54).Glascock, Anthony P. - Decrepitude and death-hastening: the nature of old age in third world societies, 1982 - 3 Variables

    This study examines the status and treatment of the elderly in non-industrial societies. Associations are found between social complexity, subsistence type, and the status and treatment of the elderly.

  10. Treatment of the elderly will be related to climate, subsistence strategy, social stratification, and belief in active high gods (408).Glascock, Anthony P. - The myth of the golden isle: old age in pre-industrial societies, 1987 - 5 Variables

    This study discusses the distribution of the treatment of the aged across a sample of pre-industrial societies. Data illustrate that the elderly were treated in a non-supportive or death-hastening manner in the majority of societies, dispelling the notion that a golden age/isle existed in pre-industrial societies in which the elderly were revered and supported. Results also suggest a relationship between age and treatment of the elderly and climate, social, and subsistence variables and the treatment of the aged.
