  1. Men's divorce freedom and defiant homicide predicted suicides attributable to interpersonal frustration while only men's divorce freedom predicted suicides with apparent extrapersonal precipitants (227-228, 222).Krauss, Herbert H. - Social contexts of suicide, 1971 - 8 Variables

    This study investigates the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, suggesting that the rate of suicide in a society can be predicted from thwarting disorientation traits such as men’s divorce freedom and defiant homicide.

  2. "Hunting and gathering societies tend to get into drunken brawls more frequently than other societies" (166)Schaefer, James Michael - A hologeistic study of family structure and sentiment, supernatural beliefs,..., 1972 - 2 Variables

    This study tests a broad hypothesis that alcohol is employed to relieve anxiety and feelings of powerlessness. Frequency of drunkenness and drunken brawling were associated with several variables, including supernatural beliefs, political systems, settlement patterns, and division of labor.

  3. High population density will be positively associated with harsh treatment of infants and children by parents or caretakers (743).Levinson, David - Population density in cross-cultural perspective, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates how population density affects social behavior, particularly whether it is a cause of stress in humans that manifests in pathological behavior or mistreatment of children. Analysis indicates that population density is not a cause of these behaviors, and with some variables (such as with divorce and sexual anxiety), there is a negative association with population density.

  4. "It was thought that highly orgainzed kinship systems would be linked with mild, non-aggressive drunkenness, while loosely structured kinship groupings would be linked with extreme, aggressive drunkenness" (171)Schaefer, James Michael - A hologeistic study of family structure and sentiment, supernatural beliefs,..., 1972 - 2 Variables

    This study tests a broad hypothesis that alcohol is employed to relieve anxiety and feelings of powerlessness. Frequency of drunkenness and drunken brawling were associated with several variables, including supernatural beliefs, political systems, settlement patterns, and division of labor.

  6. "People who drink excessively and behave aggressively while drunk have belief systems that tend to be characterized by malicious and unpredictable spirits over which they have little control" (157)Schaefer, James Michael - A hologeistic study of family structure and sentiment, supernatural beliefs,..., 1972 - 2 Variables

    This study tests a broad hypothesis that alcohol is employed to relieve anxiety and feelings of powerlessness. Frequency of drunkenness and drunken brawling were associated with several variables, including supernatural beliefs, political systems, settlement patterns, and division of labor.

  7. "The aggressive behaviors of nonliterate societies, as manifested in their suicide and homicide rates… will be inversely associated with love-oriented techniques of discipline" (466).Lester, David - Suicide, homicide, and the effects of socialization, 1967 - 3 Variables

    This study tests for an association between displays of aggression and socialization techniques in preindustrial societies. Analysis suggests there is no relationship between discipline techniques and homicidal or suicidal behavior.

  8. "Low male solidarity, non-lineal descent (i.e., bilateral descent), and lack of a jurisdictional hierarchy at the [extra] local level [indicators of low structural differentiation] are all related to each other and to drinking" (64)McClelland, David C. - A cross-cultural study of folk-tale content and drinking, 1972 - 4 Variables

    This book chapter tests new and pre-existing theories (Horton, Field, Bacon et al.) for the cause of variation in drinking across cultures. Folktale content is used to test psychological variables more directly than has been done previously. Folktale content is analyzed programmatically with an acknowledged error level of up to one-third. Results lend support to Field's 1962 theory that loose social organization facilitates drinking.
