  1. Brides and their parents are expected to have a greater net gain in resources at the time of marriage than grooms and their parents, respectively (354).Huber, Brad R. - New cross-cultural perspectives on marriage transactions, 2011 - 1 Variables

    This article refines previous research on marriage transactions and offers descriptions of new types of marriage transactions. First, the authors examine the frequency and distribution of marriage transactions. Second,the authors use a bio-cultural approach to examine how differences in male and female reproductive strategies and the kin selection theory are associated with marriage transactions.

  3. Paternal confidence level, polygyny rate, level of pathogen stress, relative age of spouses, and divorce rate will be positively associated with wealth transfer to the bride and her parents (284-6).Huber, Brad R. - Material resource investments at marriage: evolutionary, social, and ecologi..., 2011 - 6 Variables

    This article focuses on parents’ investment of material resources at the time of their child’s marriage. Two patterns emerge from the data: wealth is generally transferred from the groom’s family to the bride’s and from the couple’s parents to the bride and groom. Social and ecological factors are also examined. Multiple regression analysis shows that paternal confidence level, societal polygyny rate, and level of pathogen stress can affect the aforementioned wealth transfer patterns.

  5. Zelman's (1974) index of private ownership will have the same sign as the correlation with Murdock's (1967) index of private ownership and both will have a null probability of p<.05.Rudmin, Floyd Webster - Cross-cultural correlates of the ownership of private property: Zelman's gen..., 1996 - 23 Variables

    This article analyzes the predictors of private property ownership with an aim to replicate existing correlations using data from the dissertation of Zelman (1974).

  6. Direct and indirect care investments by biologically uncertain kin are largest in patrilateral societies (p. 207).Huber, Brad R. - Evolutionary theory, kinship, and childbirth in cross-cultural perspective, 2007 - 4 Variables

    Using an evolutionary perspective, this study tests hypotheses relating gender and kinship roles to the amount of direct and indirect care provided during and around childbirth. The roles of paternal certainty, residence rules and descent groups are also examined.

  7. Controlling on age at marriage, the presence/absence of male mortality in warfare will be associated with polygyny (13).Ember, Melvin - Alternative predictors of polygyny, 1984 - 3 Variables

    "This paper describes how the "sex-ratio" explanation of polygyny compares with some alternative, supposedly causal explanations. The results suggest that polygyny is best predicted by two statistically independent factors--high male mortality in warfare…and delayed age of marriage for men."

  8. Double descent societies with avunculocality will have polygyny significantly more than double descent societies that are patrilocal (254).Ember, Melvin - The conditions that may favor avunculocal residence, 1983 - 2 Variables

    This paper offers a tentative theory of avunculocal residence: societies that were matrilocal and matrilineal will be likely to develop avunculocality when they switch to internal warfare and experience a high male mortality rate. Some cross-cultural evidence to support this theory is provided.

  10. "Double descent societies with avunculocality should have polygyny significantly more often than the double descent societies that are patrilocal" (207)Ember, Melvin - Conditions that may favor avunculocal residence, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper suggests that previously matrilocal and matrilineal societies which are subject to a high mortality rate when they switch to fighting internally will develop avunculocal residence. The cross-cultural data presented supports the hypothesis.
