  1. Coded data quality control factors will be associated with some aspects of mode of marriage.Schaefer, James Michael - Data quality and modes of marriage: some holocultural evidence of systematic..., 1976 - 14 Variables

    Authors explore the problem of data quality control, systematic error and spurious correlations possibly caused by systematic errors in global cross-cultural studies. They offer a solution (the use of control variables investigating potential sources of systematic error) and apply the technique to a cross-cultural study of the substantive correlates of societal organization and modes of marriage.

  2. "[Mode of marriage is related to subsistence]: brideservice is related to hunting and gathering . . . bridewealth relates to horticulture, extensive agriculture and pastoralism . . . and dowry is related to intensive agriculture and industrialism" (177-188)Evascu, Thomas L. - A holocultural study of societal organization and modes of marriage: a gene..., 1975 - 2 Variables

    The author examines modes of marriage and societal organization from a functionalist (general evolutionary) perspective. He focuses on the relationships of subsistence (economic) patterns, settlement patterns, and social complexity to predicting modes of marriage, with particular emphasis on the importance of subsistence as an underlying structural influence upon social patterns.

  9. Female premarital sex is more likely to be restricted in societies in which marriage involves a gift exchange.Šaffa, Gabriel - Paternity Uncertainty and Parent–Offspring Conflict Explain Restrictions on ..., 2022 - 2 Variables

    This study tests competing theories about whether it is men, women, or parents who benefit most from restricting female premarital sex (FPS) in a global sample of 128 non-industrial societies. The study found support for the idea that multiple parties benefit from restrictions on FPS -- specifically FPS is more restricted in societies intolerant of extramarital sex and where men transfer property to their children (male control), as well as where marriages are arranged by parents (parental control). They also found that major predictors of FPS appear to be paternity uncertainty and parent-offspring conflict. Furthermore, the study found that multiple factors such as social roles, rather than stereotyped sex roles, are a more useful approach in understanding FPS restrictions and these restrictions.
