  1. The age of weaning will be later in societies with higher percentages of protein in the average diet (230).Whiting, Marjorie Grant - A Cross-Cultural Nutrition Survey of 118 Societies, Representing the Major C..., 1958 - 2 Variables

    Dietary variation has been implicated in population-level heath outcomes such as adult height and infant health. Here the author investigates these relationships in a sample of 118 nonindustrial societies, providing a comparative and quantitative assessment of nutrition and health cross-culturally.

  3. "A positive relationships exists between satisfaction potential for the five dimensions of child-training practices and tight-lose societies, and a negative relationship between socialization anxiety potential and tight-loose societies" (280).Hutter, Mark - The relationship of child rearing practices to societal "tightness" and "loo..., 1972 - 3 Variables

    This paper studies Pelto's (1962, 1968) operational definition for the tightness and looseness of societies in relation to child rearing practices. Results suggest that societies with a "tight" social structure will have child training practices that promote conformity and obedience and vice versa.

  6. Frequency of geophagy will be positively associated with periods of food shortage or famine (110).Young, Sera L. - Why on earth?: Evaluating hypotheses about the physiological functions of hu..., 2011 - 2 Variables

    The author tests various hypotheses regarding cross-cultural occurrence of geophagy, the eating of earth. Nearly 500 years of references to geophagy were compiled into the Database on Human Geophagy, which was then used to examine biological justifications for this little-understood behavior.

  7. "All of the Shamans were in nomadic or seminomadic societies, which generally has hunting and gathering economies" (36)..."However, all of the Shaman/Healers were found in societies with agriculture, and almost all of the Healers were found in societies with political integration beyond the local level" (36)Winkelman, Michael James - Magico-religious practitioner types and socioeconomic conditions, 1986 - 5 Variables

    The authors examine the relationship between magico-religious practitioner type and socioeconomic variables in order to present a typology of magico-religious practitioners. Three bases for magico-religious practitioners are discussed in terms of selection procedures and activities. Several hypotheses are empirically tested, and descriptive generalizations derived from analyses are presented.

  8. The infant/child's age at introduction of liquid and solid non-breastmilk foods tends to be lower in preindustrial populations with agricultural or pastoral subsistence types than in hunting and gathering socieities (p. 50).Sellen, Daniel W. - Relationships between subsistence and age at weaning in "preindustrial" soci..., 2001 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the weaning food availability hypothesis, that both the introduction of foods other than breastmilk and the cessation of breastfeeding will vary by society's subsistence type. This hypothesis has implications for demography, as accelerated weaning can lead to increases in both mothers' fertility (due to decreased birth intervals) and infant mortality (due to the presence of pathogens in new foods).
