  1. Menarcheal age was negatively related to infant cold stress and infant internal stress (227)Whiting, John W.M. - Menarcheal age and infant stress in humans, 1965 - 3 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between infant stress and early menarche. Empirical analysis suggests that stress in infancy, such as mother-infant separation and head-shaping, are associated with early menarche.

  2. "[When] we . . . correlated menarcheal age with the Landauer-Whiting measure of infant stress . . . pain and shaping did show a positive association" (226)Whiting, John W.M. - Menarcheal age and infant stress in humans, 1965 - 3 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between infant stress and early menarche. Empirical analysis suggests that stress in infancy, such as mother-infant separation and head-shaping, are associated with early menarche.

  3. "The average menstrual age is younger in societies where the average height of females is greater" (223)Whiting, John W.M. - Menarcheal age and infant stress in humans, 1965 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between infant stress and early menarche. Empirical analysis suggests that stress in infancy, such as mother-infant separation and head-shaping, are associated with early menarche.

  4. ". . . Type III [deliberate instruction by non-kin with change of residence] is employed by mother-child societies" (319)Herzog, John D. - Deliberate instruction and household structure: a cross-cultural study, 1962 - 2 Variables

    This study examines relationships among the instruction of children, household type and size, and political integration. Particular attention is paid to type of instruction--whether the instructor is kin or non-kin, and whether the instruction requires a change in the child's residence. Different types of instruction are theorized to solve problems for children in different household types (e.g. children in mother-child households experience gender identity conflict, and so leave their houses for instruction from non-kin). The causality between instruction and societal complexity is also discussed.

  5. "Polygynous societies are intermediate [in the type of instruction employed]" (319)Herzog, John D. - Deliberate instruction and household structure: a cross-cultural study, 1962 - 2 Variables

  6. "[There is a] joint effect of duration of the post-partum sex taboo and the severity of socialization of aggression on the belief that sorcerers can cause sickness" (152)Whiting, John W.M. - Sorcery, sin and the superego: a cross-cultural study of some mechanisms of..., 1967 - 4 Variables

    This chapter examines how sorcery, sin, and the superego function in societies to uphold taboos and other forms of social control. The author also explores the child-rearing conditions that are necessary to produce and maintain these cultural mechanisms. Several hypotheses are tested and all are supported.

  7. Certain infant sleeping practices will be associated with the 10 degree isotherm.Whiting, John W.M. - Winter temperature as a constraint to the migration of preindustrial peoples, 1982 - 2 Variables

    Using a sample of 313 societies classified within 24 language phyla, authors put forward a statistical model based on climate data [specifically focused on the 10°C (50°F) winter temperature isotherm] to explain why dispersion of preindustrial language phyla is remarkably homogeneous even despite heterogeneous geographical dispersion of sampled preindustrial cultural groups. They suggest that temperature has been a barrier to migration.

  8. "With regard to Type II instruction [deliberate instruction by non-kin without change of residence], societies with different household types are affected dissimilarly by political integration" (319)Herzog, John D. - Deliberate instruction and household structure: a cross-cultural study, 1962 - 3 Variables

    This study examines relationships among the instruction of children, household type and size, and political integration. Particular attention is paid to type of instruction--whether the instructor is kin or non-kin, and whether the instruction requires a change in the child's residence. Different types of instruction are theorized to solve problems for children in different household types (e.g. children in mother-child households experience gender identity conflict, and so leave their houses for instruction from non-kin). The causality between instruction and societal complexity is also discussed.

  9. "If we plot the distribution of these scores, we find that the relationship between the two variables [economic and political development] is not linear. Rather, the relationship curves increasingly upward" (243-244)Ember, Melvin - The relationship between economic and political development in nonindustrial..., 1963 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates the role of economic development in facilitating political development in preindustrial societies, theorizing that the redistribution of resources is an important factor in this relationship. Results indicate that these two types of development have a curvilinear relationship, and the author concludes that economic development is a necessary but not sufficient cause of political development in preindustrial societies.

  10. "Mother-child and polygynous societies are somewhat more likely than nuclear and extended to employ concurrently both Type II and Type III instruction [deliberate instruction by non-kin without change of residence and deliberate instruction by non-kin with change of residence]" (319)Herzog, John D. - Deliberate instruction and household structure: a cross-cultural study, 1962 - 2 Variables

    This study examines relationships among the instruction of children, household type and size, and political integration.
