  1. Purely unilocal residence (without a significant alternative postmarital residence pattern) will be associated with the formation of a unilineal descent group (84-86).Korotayev, Andrey V. - Unilocal residence and unilineal descent: a reconsideration, 2004 - 2 Variables

    This study focuses on the development of unilineal descent, reviewing previous theories and testing additional factors to explain the relationship between unilineal descent and unilocal residence. Results suggest four key factors leading to a low association between these two variables: insufficient alternatives to unilocal residence rule, instability of communal composition, absence of sedentary settlement pattern, and small average community size. A model linking all variables from the paper is presented.

  2. ". . . Unilocality is a necessary but not sufficient condition for unilineal descent" (70)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This article tests some conditions that may lead to the emergence of unilineal descent, focusing on unilocality and warfare. Unilineal descent is thought to be likely in a unilocal society without a centralized political system that is experiencing intra- or inter-societal warfare. The authors also posit that a "clan" system usually develops prior to a "lineage" system.

  4. ". . . among unilineal societies with internal warfare, those with higher densities would be more likely to have lineages than those with low densities" (82)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 4 Variables

  5. ". . . there is a positive association between the number of putative unilineal groups at the highest level of unilineal descent in the society and the total number of persons in the society" (85)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 2 Variables

  7. "Lineages develop prior to putative descent groups" (90)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 2 Variables

  8. Gossip will be more important in societies with higher levels of stratification (298, 303).Demerath, Loren - The importance of gossip across societies: correlations with institutionaliz..., 2015 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates the theory that gossip, as a method of obtaining information and creating a meaningful social environment, increases in importance with society complexity. Forms of gossip in highly "modernized" societies, which are rare in the cross-cultural sample, are discussed. In addition, the authors explore associations between gender autonomy and the importance of gossip.

  10. ". . . societies with internal warfare would tend to have at least one level of unilineal descent group typically contiguous, whereas societies with purely external warfare would not be as likely to have contiguous descent groups" (78)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 2 Variables
