  1. Young adults will be classified as problem/pathalogical gamblers than individuals of other age classes (351).Gray, Peter B. - Evolutionary and cross-cultural perspectives on gambling, 2004 - 2 Variables

    This study uses evolutionary theory to hypothesize about the association between age, gender, and gambling. Results suggest that males are more frequent and riskier gamblers than females and that young adults are more likely to have gambling problems than people of other age classes.

  6. Community permeability (accessibility to households) will have a linear correlation with frequency of war (358)Peregrine, Peter N. - Raoul Naroll's Contribution to Archaeology, 1994 - 2 Variables

    An extension of the author's 1993 study, An Archaeological Correlate of War, this study examines the relationship between community permeability and war in the ethnographic record using Naroll's study on household and population as a model with the aim of making inferences to the archaeological record.

  7. High level of nutrition will be positively associated with sexual dimorphism of stature (228).Wolfe, Linda D. - A cross-cultural investigation into the sexual dimorphism of stature, 1982 - 2 Variables

    This article examines height and sexual dimorphism of stature from a sociobiological perspective. Diet, child rearing, and marriage practices are tested as possible factors contributing to height sexual dimorphism of stature. Results provide some support for a nutritional hypotheses, but sexual selection and parental investment are not statistically significant.

  10. The Lenski and Service taxonomies will differ in their fit to social stratification data (ii).Owen, Craig - Cross-cultural analysis of stratification with societal taxonomies, 2007 - 1 Variables

    This paper investigates two theories of social stratification: Lenski’s ecological-evolutionary taxonomy which is based on subsistence technology and Service’s taxonomy which is based on social organization. Findings indicate that different components of stratification are better explained by Lenski’s taxonomy, but a global concept of stratification matched better with the Service taxonomy.
