  1. "When technology, as measured by subsistence economy is held constant . . . [and we] cross tabulate familial complexity with . . . size of community . . . [and with] political complexity, gammas are significantly positive for low levels of technology and nonsignificant for higher levels" (909)Blumberg, Rae Lesser - Societal complexity and familial complexity: evidence for the curvilinear h..., 1972 - 4 Variables

    This study investigates the relationship between societal complexity and familial complexity. Results suggest that the relationship is somewhat curvilinear; that is, in simpler societies more societal complexity is associated with a larger familial system, but the most developed societies have smaller familial systems. The demographic, economic, and politcal correlates of maximum family size are discussed.

  3. "We find a curvilinear relationship . . . between familial complexity and each of the four aspects of . . . societal complexity . . . mean size of local community, permanence of settlement, stratification, and . . . levels of jurisdictional hierarchy" (907, 908, 909)Blumberg, Rae Lesser - Societal complexity and familial complexity: evidence for the curvilinear h..., 1972 - 5 Variables

    This study investigates the relationship between societal complexity and familial complexity. Results suggest that the relationship is somewhat curvilinear; that is, in simpler societies more societal complexity is associated with a larger familial system, but the most developed societies have smaller familial systems. The demographic, economic, and politcal correlates of maximum family size are discussed.

  4. "[For] a strong test of our curvilinear hypothesis we . . . applied [Marsh's Index of Differentiation], a single societal complexity measure . . . to [familial complexity] covering the range . . . from hunting and gathering to modern urban-industrial" (918)Blumberg, Rae Lesser - Societal complexity and familial complexity: evidence for the curvilinear h..., 1972 - 2 Variables

  5. "The limited family [nuclear, stem and lineal] is found with complexity of economy, of stratification, and of settlement pattern; this type of family is associated with monogamous marriage and small family size" (304)Osmond, Marie W. - A cross-cultural analysis of family organization, 1969 - 6 Variables

    This study uses a multiple regression analysis to examine the relationship between society type and several variables of societal organization. Results suggest that limited family type is more likely to be found in complex societies.

  6. Male solidarity has a curvilinear relationship with the complexity of the local community. Where local autonomy prevails and division of labor is minimal, men's organizations are lacking. Under conditions of high social complexity, on the other hand, complex division of labor undermines male solidarity. Therefore, male solidarity is strongest at the middle levels of community complexity (100, 104)Young, Frank W. - Initiation ceremonies: a cross-cultural study of status dramatization, 1965 - 3 Variables

    This book investigates a broad hypothesis linking social solidarity and initiation ceremonies. The author proposes that “the degree of solidarity of a given social system determines the degree to which status transitions within it will be dramatized” (1). A variety of operational hypotheses are supported for both male and female initiation ceremonies.

  7. Family complexity will be positively associated with socialization toward conformity (p. 393).Ellis, Godfrey J. - Supervision and conformity: a cross-cultural analysis of parental socializat..., 1978 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates child socialization toward obedience and conformity as a function of the supervision that parents experience in their own lives. Measures of economic, familial, political, and religious supervision in parents' lives are examined.

  8. Nuclear family type will be positively correlated with GDP.Baudin, Thomas - Economics and Family Structures, 2021 - 2 Variables

    Through review of the economic literature and cross-cultural analysis of families (nuclear, stem, and complex), the authors show that family type is heterogeneous and argue that types other than nuclear have been largely ignored by economists. They encourage, based on their findings, further research on family structure and the development of better models for household decision making. They use ancestral populations in the ethnographic record to estimate country-level family patterns.

  9. "The relationship of monogamy and independent families to societal complexity is more adequately described by a curvilinear model than by a linear model" (221)Sheils, Howard Dean - Monogamy and independent families, 1971 - 3 Variables

    This article suggests that the relationship of monogamy and independent families to societal complexity is best represented by a curvilinear rather than a linear model. Though the variance explained in this relationship is low, it is somewhat increased when variables are scored as dummy variables rather than ordinal.

  10. "The table shows that nuclear household societies with a high degree of complexity do not involve their women in subsistence pursuits, and at the same time employ Type II instruction [deliberate instruction by non-kin without change of residence]; it shows the reverse for nuclear societies with low complexity" (332)Herzog, John D. - Deliberate instruction and household structure: a cross-cultural study, 1962 - 4 Variables

    This study examines relationships among the instruction of children, household type and size, and political integration. Particular attention is paid to type of instruction--whether the instructor is kin or non-kin, and whether the instruction requires a change in the child's residence. Different types of instruction are theorized to solve problems for children in different household types (e.g. children in mother-child households experience gender identity conflict, and so leave their houses for instruction from non-kin). The causality between instruction and societal complexity is also discussed.
