  1. Findings: Factor L, "Lineality", is bipolar. Traits which load heavily and positively (oblimax rotation) are: patripotestal family authority, patrilineal inheritance, patrilineal descent, patrilineal succession, and subjection of women. Negative loadings are for matrilineal inheritance and descent (21)Gouldner, Alvin W. - Notes on technology and the moral order, 1962 - 8 Variables

    Using empirical data and statistical methodology, Gouldner and Peterson aim to identify fundamental dimensions across societies, examine the relationships among these dimensions, and evaluate their importance. Data analysis is largely based on factor analysis, and the authors discuss how statistical methods fit into functional social theory.

  2. Findings: Factor T, "Level of Technology", with its stress on pottery and grain for food is suggestive of neolithic technology. The two heaviest positive loadings (oblimax rotation) were noted above. Other heavy positive loadings are: mining and smelting, prevalence of war, basketry, money, weaving, herding, agriculture, domesticated animals other than herded. Highest negative loadings are: warm climate, legendary heroes, fishing, and patrilocal residence (25)Gouldner, Alvin W. - Notes on technology and the moral order, 1962 - 14 Variables

  3. "Insofar as Apollonianism involves a stress on cognitive modes of experience and a hopeful melioristic view of the world we should expect it to correlate positively with [Factor] T (Technology)" (36)Gouldner, Alvin W. - Notes on technology and the moral order, 1962 - 2 Variables

  4. Findings: Factor A, "Apollonianism or Norm-Sending", has high positive loadings (oblimax rotation) for: elaboration of ceremony and ritual, organized priesthood, authority vested in judges, power vested in chief, government by restricted council, and attractiveness of future life. Highest negative loadings are for marriage by capture and domesticated animals other than herded.Gouldner, Alvin W. - Notes on technology and the moral order, 1962 - 8 Variables

  5. Findings: Factor SC, "Sex Dominance", is bipolar. It loads heavily and positively (oblimax rotation) for matrilocal residence, monogamy, and more moderately for communal houses. High negative loadings are shown for polygyny, patrilocal residence, legendary heroes, and more moderately for government by restricted council (22)Gouldner, Alvin W. - Notes on technology and the moral order, 1962 - 8 Variables

  6. Societies with a high level of technology should have a written language, a high level of trade, and hereditary castes and classes, and should correlate with the Hobhouse, Wheeler and Ginsberg classification of the stages of economic culture (28, 29, 30)Gouldner, Alvin W. - Notes on technology and the moral order, 1962 - 5 Variables

  7. Father's avaiability and sex of parent responsible for daily socialization will be positively associated with socialization for aggression (115)Broude, Gwen J. - Protest masculinity: a further look at the causes and the concept, 1990 - 3 Variables

    A study of the factors that predict extremely masculine behaviors and traits in men (conceptualized as protest masculinity in the status-envy and father-absence theories). Findings point to the important role of socialization for aggression as a mediating factor in the relationship between father's role and "protest masculinity."

  8. Findings: A factor analysis of key dimensions to describe a given culture yielded 12 factors. Factor 3, "tropical rain forest culture", loaded highly and positively on Malayo-Polynesian linguistic affiliation; tropical rain forest; horticulture subsistence; gift exchange to obtain wives; pig husbandry; secure food supply; and games of skill. Factor 3 loaded highly and negatively on cereal crops (57)Stewart, Robert A. C. - Cultural dimensions: a factor analysis of textor's a cross-cultural summary, 1972 - 9 Variables

    This article uses factor analysis to identify the key variables underlying the many cross-cultural associations reported by Textor (1967). Twelve factors are identified.

Factor 12, "adolescent peer group activity", loaded highly and positively on time and setting of adolescent peer groups; conflict regarding achievement and obedient behavor of child; exhibitionistic dancing emphasized; and kin group patrilineal or double descent. Factor 12 loaded negatively on games of skill and wives obtained by bride price (64)Stewart, Robert A.

  10. Findings: A factor analysis of traits used to develop a settlement pattern scale of cultural complexity yielded three important factors. Factor 2, "Political" (oblique rotation), loaded positively and heavily on leadership and political structure variables (245)McNett, Charles W., Jr. - Factor analysis of a cross-cultural sample, 1973 - 4 Variables

    This study employs factor analysis to develop a settlement pattern scale of cultural complexity. Political, economic, and religious factors are identified and implications for the structure of the cultural system are discussed.
