  1. Societies practicing matrilocality will be associated with larger house areas.Hrnčíř, Václav - Identifying post-marital residence patterns in prehistory: A phylogenetic co..., 2020 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the association between post-marital residence patterns and dwelling size in pre-industrial societies using comparative methods and a global sample of 86 societies. The results suggest that matrilocality is associated with larger dwellings (over 65 square meters) in agricultural societies, while patrilocality is associated with smaller dwellings. The study also finds that sedentism is the single best predictor of house size. The study concludes that post-marital residence and house size evolve in a correlated fashion, which can help make reliable inferences about the social organization of prehistoric societies from archaeological records.

  5. Expected that more mobile societies have lower ratio of average household size to average house floor area than more sedentary societies (75).Porcic, Marko - Effects of residential mobility on the ratio of average house floor area to ..., 2012 - 2 Variables

    Examines whether nomadism affects the ratio of average house floor area to average household size.

  6. Since in societies with sororal polygyny co-wives live together in the same house, it should also be true that sisters find it easier to live together when they are married to different men in matrilocal societies. I expected houses in matrilocal societies to have a larger living floor area than houses in patrilocal societies (177)Ember, Melvin - An archaeological indicator of matrilocal versus patrilocal residence, 1973 - 2 Variables

    The study suggests an archaeological indicator of matrilocal versus patrilocal residence. The cross-cultural samples suggest that matrilocal versus patrilocal residence can be simply and accurately predicted from the living floor area of the average house in the society.

  7. Anticipated dwelling use will be associated with floor area and wall height (13).Diehl, Michael W. - Architecture as a material correlate of mobility strategies: some implicatio..., 1992 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates a possible association between mobility strategy and dwelling construction. The author tests a broad hypothesis that planned duration of use for a structure is positively associated with the investment costs in building a dwelling. Some operational hypotheses are supported; others are not.

  8. Ground plan shape will be associated with house hold form.Arwen L. Feather - Circular or rectangular ground plans: Some costs and benefits, 1996 - 2 Variables

    In the present study, Feather explores the relationship between floor plan shape and settlement permanence in order to theorize how mobility strategy influences floor plan choice. Feather incorporates the theoretical framework of previous studies by examining how floor plans and building materials vary across mobility and residential strategies, as well as social and political concerns.

  10. Marital residence (matrilocal versus patrilocal) will be associated with household floor area (414).Porcic, Marko - House floor area as a correlate of marital residence pattern: a logistic reg..., 2010 - 2 Variables

    This article employs logistic regression to test the relationship between house floor area and marital residence. Results indicate there is an association, but the relationship is stronger in a solely agricultural sample and nonexistent in a non-agricultural sample. This is likely due to the tendency for mobile groups to build several smaller homes for faster and more efficient household construction. Overall the authors suggest that floor area alone should not be taken as a sole indicator of marital residence.
