  4. Socio-cultural values of countries predict COVID-19 mortality rates.Endress, Ansgar D. - Socio-cultural values are risk factors for COVID-19-related mortality, 2022 - 20 Variables

    This paper proposes that the socio-cultural values of countries may be associated with increased mortality due to COVID-19. Using results from the World Values survey, the author assessed which values had the strongest association with a change in COVID-19 mortality in datasets consisting of all countries, upper-middle and high income economies, upper-middle income economies, high income economies, and advanced economies. The author also sought to determine whether the WVS values that were associated with COVID-19 mortality were also associated with general life expectancy. The results showed that COVID-19 mortality was increased in countries that placed a higher value on freedom of speech, political participation, religion, technocracy, post-materialism, social tolerance, law and order, and acceptance of authority. On the other hand, mortality was decreased in countries with high trust in major companies and institutions and that endorsed maintenance of order as a goal for a country. The author also found that values related to COVID-19 mortality did not predict general health outcomes, and that some values that predicted increased COVID-19 mortality actually predicted decreased mortality from other outcomes.

  7. "Political complexity is directly related to the degree of external threat" (693)Abrahamson, Mark - Correlates of political complexity, 1969 - 2 Variables

    It is suggested that the degree of political complexity is more strongly related to degree of social differentiation than to size and concentration of population.

  9. Population density, political hierarchy, economic division of labor, and monetary exchange will be positively associated with the universalization of ritual (118).Reeves, Edward B. - Anonymity and the rise of universal occasions for religious ritual: an exten..., 1992 - 5 Variables

    This article describes the rise of abstracted religious beliefs in larger, more anonymous societies and investigates whether societal density and differentiation have had similar effects on ritual. The authors suggest that the universalization of ritual is due in part to interrelated effects of population size, political hierarchy, economic division of labor, and monetary exchange, all factors that create anonymity in society.
