  1. Nuclear family type will be positively 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. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. "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.

  9. Kinship tightness will be negatively correlated with dependence on hunting and gathering.Enke, Benjamin - Kinship, Cooperation, and the Evolution of Moral Systems, 2019 - 2 Variables

    In this paper, the author argues that moral systems evolved as a way to enforce cooperation between people outside of kin groups. Because cooperation within kin groups has apparent adaptive advantages, it is argued that these moral systems will be less important for societies with tight kin groups and conversely more important for those with looser kin groups. In order to test this theory, the author creates an original model that incorporates both ethnographic data and data from contemporary countries. Thus, it is postulated that historical kinship practices will influence contemporary systems. The paper concludes that there is sufficient historical evidence for this theory.
