  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. "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.

  3. "The association between menarcheal age and the Gunders mother separation scores . . . [indicates] that this type of stress also leads to early menarche" (228)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. Infant stress (physical or separation) will be correlated with age at menarche (366).Landauer, Thomas K. - Correlates and consequences of stress in infancy, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This study is a continuation of previous research on the relationship between stress during infancy and adult height. With a better understanding of the stressors that infants experience and their effects, the authors test whether the relationship between stress and adult height remains significant when accounting for other environmental factors that may influence adult height. Results suggest that the relationship between infant stress and adult height does remain significant. Findings also show a relationship between infant stress and age at menarche.

  5. The effect of one physical stressor will not differ significantly from the effect of two or more combined stressors (360).Landauer, Thomas K. - Correlates and consequences of stress in infancy, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This study is a continuation of previous research on the relationship between stress during infancy and adult height. With a better understanding of the stressors that infants experience and their effects, the authors test whether the relationship between stress and adult height remains significant when accounting for other environmental factors that may influence adult height. Results suggest that the relationship between infant stress and adult height does remain significant. Findings also show a relationship between infant stress and age at menarche.

  6. "[There is] an association with dramatization (of male sex role at adolescence] in the case of adolescent shift of sleeping quarters and boyhood ceremonies, but no such association for childhood festivities" (82)Young, Frank W. - Initiation ceremonies: a cross-cultural study of status dramatization, 1965 - 4 Variables

    This book investigates a broad hypothesis linking social solidarity and initiation ceremonies. The author proposes that “the degree of solidarity of a given social system determines the degree to which status transitions within it will be dramatized” (1). A variety of operational hypotheses are supported for both male and female initiation ceremonies.

  7. Controlling for genetics, climate, and nutrition, infant stress will be significantly related to adult male height (361).Landauer, Thomas K. - Correlates and consequences of stress in infancy, 1981 - 5 Variables

    This study is a continuation of previous research on the relationship between stress during infancy and adult height. With a better understanding of the stressors that infants experience and their effects, the authors test whether the relationship between stress and adult height remains significant when accounting for other environmental factors that may influence adult height. Results suggest that the relationship between infant stress and adult height does remain significant. Findings also show a relationship between infant stress and age at menarche.

  8. "Four measures of responsibility socialization show positive strong relationships with ceremonial drinking . . . and with general consumption of alcohol" (42)Bacon, Margaret K. - A cross-cultural study of drinking: ii. relations to other features of culture, 1965 - 5 Variables

    This study explores cultural variables associated with frequency of drunkenness and ceremonial drinking. Particular attention was paid to childhood socialization variables, as well as politcal and social organization. Results show a low correlation between frequency of drunkenness and frequency of ceremonial drinking, and various other variables are associated with each.

  9. "Those societies which are relatively neglectful of infants should be more afraid of ghosts at funerals than those societies in which children are treated indulgently during their infancy" (156)Whiting, John W.M. - Sorcery, sin and the superego: a cross-cultural study of some mechanisms of..., 1967 - 2 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.
