  1. Matrilocal societies will only practice external warfare (106).Divale, William Tulio - An explanation for matrilocal residence, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This study explores possible causes of matrilocal residence. Previous hypotheses are unsupported. Results show a significant relationship between matrilocality and recent migration.

  2. Matrilocality will be positively associated with neighboring societies who speak dissimilar languages (98)Divale, William Tulio - Migration, external warfare, and matrilocal residence, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Several theories on the development of matrilocal residence are tested. The main argument put forth predicts that matrilocal residence will develop in response to a need to break up fraternal interest groups that encourage internal war and instead encourage a pattern of external war that is more beneficial in populated regions with additional group migration.

  3. "Uxorilocal or matrilocal residence should be correlated with frequent external warfare while avunculocal or patrilocal residence should be correlated with less frequent external warfare" (297)Divale, William Tulio - The causes of matrilocal residence: a cross-ethnohistorical survey, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Author proposes and presents evidence in support of the theory that most societies practice virilocal or patrilocal residence (this is the "normal" pattern" and that matrilocal residence is adopted when societies migrate to an already populated area.

  4. Migration of a society (band or tribe) into a new region that is already inhabited by other societies of similar social complexity will be positively associated with matrilocality (79, 97-98)Divale, William Tulio - Migration, external warfare, and matrilocal residence, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Several theories on the development of matrilocal residence are tested. The main argument put forth predicts that matrilocal residence will develop in response to a need to break up fraternal interest groups that encourage internal war and instead encourage a pattern of external war that is more beneficial in populated regions with additional group migration.

  6. Matrilocaliity will be associated with tropical forest climates (100).Divale, William Tulio - An explanation for matrilocal residence, 1975 - 2 Variables

  7. "Patrilocality should be correlated with internal war and matrilocality with external war" (61)Divale, William Tulio - War, peace, and marital residence in pre-industrial societies, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This article tests a series of hypotheses differentiating internal warfare and external warfare. Results support the theory that internal warfare is a population control mechanism more common in patrilocal societies, whereas external warfare occurs between two societies, one of which recently migrated and adopted matrilocal residence. Based on these findings, the authors assert that internal warfare can be regulated while external warfare cannot.

  10. "The recency of past migration should be correlated with the degree of external warfare engaged in by a society" (294)Divale, William Tulio - The causes of matrilocal residence: a cross-ethnohistorical survey, 1974 - 2 Variables
