  8. ". . . there is no relationship . . . [between] frequency of drunkenness . . . [and] all measures related to integrated drinking" (39)Bacon, Margaret K. - A cross-cultural study of drinking: ii. relations to other features of culture, 1965 - 2 Variables

    This study explores cultural variables associated with frequency of drunkenness and ceremonial drinking.

  9. "The proximity hypothesis suggests that bifurcation should be positively associated with the degree of community exogamy" (255)Witkowski, Stanley - A cross-cultural test of the proximity hypothesis, 1972 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests the proximity hypothesis (used by Murdock [1949]) which posits that residential propinquity will be associated with parent-in-law avoidance and kin terminology. Several operational hypotheses are tested but none are supported. The author suggests that this finding may cast doubt other hypotheses that underlie Murdock’s findings, such as the participation hypothesis.
