  9. "Societies with greater resource scarcity will have more positive valuations of fatness in women" (258).Ember, Carol R. - Valuing thinness or fatness in women: reevaluating the effect of resource sc..., 2005 - 2 Variables

    This study focuses on preferences for thinness or fatness in women cross-culturally. Results contradict previous studies and the hypothesis that preference for fatness in women is predicted by resource scarcity. Alternative explanations for valuation of fatness are explored, including climate and male dominance.
