  1. "[In factor analysis of Murdock's WES, for factor deviant patricentered organization variables loading heavily are] patrilineal descent and kindreds unreported, patrilineal succession other than Br or So or preference unspecified, and hunting-gathering important but not dominant" (335)Driver, Harold E. - Correlational analysis of murdock's 1957 ethnographic sample, 1967 - 4 Variables

    This paper "reduces Murdock's 210 categories to 30 variables, and intercorrelates and factor analyzes the variables for six world subdivisions as well as for the entire world." This article also discusses factor analysis as a method and examines the correlations more closely between the two regions that differed the most, North America and the Circum-Mediterranean.

  5. Findings: A factor analysis of key dimensions to describe a given culture yielded 12 factors. Factor 2, "father-centered family", loaded highly and positively on patrilocal marital residence and bride price; patrilineal kin group; castes present; Circum-Mediterranean, with Afro-Asiatic linguistic affiliation; active high god; and subsistence by animal husbandry. Factor 2 loaded highly and negatively on painful female initiation rites (57)Stewart, Robert A. C. - Cultural dimensions: a factor analysis of textor's a cross-cultural summary, 1972 - 9 Variables

    This article uses factor analysis to identify the key variables underlying the many cross-cultural associations reported by Textor (1967). Twelve factors are identified.

  6. Kin avoidance behavior will be associated with culture area, language family, descent, residence, and kinship terminology.Driver, Harold E. - Geographical-historical versus psycho-functional explanations of kin avoidances, 1966 - 6 Variables

    This article re-examines previous hypotheses by Tylor regarding kin avoidance behavior. The author tests hypotheses on a sample of North American societies that accounts for genetic language families. Results provide partial support for hypotheses.

Factor 12 loaded negatively on games of skill and wives obtained by bride price (64)Stewart, Robert A.

  8. "Matrilineal descent is almost invariably found in association with either avunculocal or matrilocal residence, patrilocal residence accompanies patrilineal, ambilineal and double descent, whereas bilateral descent coexists freely with all except avunculocal rule" (273-274)Murdock, George Peter - Settlement patterns and community organization: cross-cultural codes 3, 1972 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates residence, descent rules, and family structure. Empirical analysis suggests that they are associated with settlement patterns, particularly economic and demographic variables.

Factor 5 loaded highly and negatively on kin groups patrilineal or double descent; marital residence patrilocal (59)Stewart, Robert A.

  10. "[Residence and descent are highly correlated.] Nearly all patrilineal cultures are patrilocal or matri-patrilocal. . . . If matrilineal, societies may be patrilocal or matrilocal, with the latter predominating. . . . If the rule is double descent, the cultures are almost exclusively patrilocal" (24)Nimkoff, M. F. - Types of family and The social system and the family, 1965 - 2 Variables
