  1. Complex family type will be negatively correlated with access to justice.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.

  6. Mothers rearing children are unlikely to live in nuclear, neolocal households (173).Weisner, Thomas S. - My brother's keeper: child and sibling caretaking [and comments and reply], 1977 - 3 Variables

    This study discusses childcare done by children. While no empirical hypotheses are tested, the authors identify some potential sociocultural and developmental correlates of childcare by children and provide relevant descriptive statistics. Possible correlates include mother-child relationships, conceptions and emergence of childhood stages, organization of play groups, development of social responsibility, sex differences, personality development, cognitive style and cognitive development, motivation and learning.

  7. Linear nomenclature for uncles will be associated with succession, financial consideration at marriage, marital residence, and household type (881).Farber, Bernard - Bilateral kinship: centripetal and centrifugal types of organization, 1975 - 5 Variables

    This paper describes a typology which is intended to indicate the kinds of family and kinship structures associated with the conflicting requirements of cohesion and differentiation of broader social structures.

  8. "Results support the expected relationship between . . . societal differentiation and family type" (155)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. "[There is an] absence of association between family type and modes of marriage . . . and between women's contribution to subsistence and modes of marriage" (157)Evascu, Thomas L. - A holocultural study of societal organization and modes of marriage: a gene..., 1975 - 3 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.

  10. The degree to which a woman's marriage is arranged by her family will be positively related to family size (17).Hull, Brooks - The economics of misbehavior, love and marriage contract enforcement, 1989 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the predictors of arranged marriage versus marriage for love. Several predictions are supported and results uphold the hypothesis that "societies promote the method of marriage contract enforcement best adapted to available production technology, incentives to misbehave, and methods of coercion."
