  1. Nuclear family type will be positively correlated with GDP.Baudin, Thomas - Economics and Family Structures, 2021 - 2 Variables

    Through review of the economic literature and cross-cultural analysis of families (nuclear, stem, and complex), the authors show that family type is heterogeneous and argue that types other than nuclear have been largely ignored by economists. They encourage, based on their findings, further research on family structure and the development of better models for household decision making. They use ancestral populations in the ethnographic record to estimate country-level family patterns.

  4. Ancestral nuclear, stem, and complex family types will be heterogeneous cross-culturally.Baudin, Thomas - Economics and Family Structures, 2021 - 1 Variables

  6. "Subsistence type does not significantly correlate with the presence or absence of extended families" (99)De Leeuwe, J. - Replication in cross-cultural research: descent, marriage system, and mode ..., 1971 - 2 Variables

    This study examines relationships among descent, marriageable relatives, residence, family, and mode of production.

  7. "There is a rough relationship between type of family system and the subsistence pattern ordered according to productivity and stability: independent family most common in hunting and gathering . . . extended family prevaling where fishing, agriculture dominant . . ." (216-217)Nimkoff, M. F. - Types of family and types of economy, 1960 - 2 Variables

    This article posits that nuclear, independent families are more common under certain economic conditions that affect food supply, demand for family labor, physical mobility, and property system. Empirical analysis suggests that nuclear, independent families are associated with hunting and gathering subsistence type and low social stratification.

  8. Associations will exist between family type and different types of social stratification (formal age grades, hereditary aristocracy, wealth distinctions).Chu, Hsien-jen - A cross-cultural study of the relationships between family types and social ..., 1969 - 4 Variables

    This study examines the relationship betweeen family type and forms of social stratification. Findings refute current theories (that the independent family is associated with complex social stratification) and suggest that the lineal family is positively associated with complex social stratification.

  9. "If bilaterality (verus unilineality) were to correlate with modernity of society--in the sense of a higher level of the production forces . . . and the nuclear family . . . reflects the level of production forces . . . then bilaterality should be . . . accompanied by absence of extended families . . ." (96)De Leeuwe, J. - Replication in cross-cultural research: descent, marriage system, and mode ..., 1971 - 2 Variables

    This study examines relationships among descent, marriageable relatives, residence, family, and mode of production.

  10. Autonomy in mate selection will be negatively associated with the prevalence of extended families (323).Lee, Gary R. - Mate-selection systems and criteria: variation according to family structure, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationships between family structure, type of mate-selection system, and romantic love as a basis for mate-selection. Analysis indicates that autonomous mate selection is more common in societies with nuclear family structure and neolocal residence patterns. Romantic love as a basis for mate selection is also more common with nuclear family organization, but it is negatively associated with neolocal residence patterns.
