  3. Wife beating will be predicted by a variety of socio-economic variables.Campbell, Jacquelyn C. - Beating of wives: a cross-cultural perspective, 1985 - 1 Variables

    This article presents a preliminary cross-cultural analysis of wifebeating. The author examines the relationships between wifebeating and various socio-economic variables and finds potential relationships between father absence, general acceptance of violence and wifebeating.

  4. "[There is] no association between wife beating [,] . . . another index of the relation between husband and wife [,] . . . and rooming arrangements. It is associated rather with independent versus extended households. Wife beating tends not to occur in . . . [extended] households" (190)Whiting, John W.M. - Aloofness and intimacy of husbands and wives: a cross-cultural study, 1975 - 3 Variables

    This study examines husband-wife relationships, specifically rooming and sleeping arrangements, as they relate to variables such as infant care, subsistence, residence, and cultural complexity. Several hypotheses are tested and all are supported.

  5. Sex ratio is positively correlated with the presence of wife beating (2).Stone, Emily A. - A Test of an Evolutionary Hypothesis of Violence Against Women: The Case of ..., 2017 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates variation in rates of violence against women, primarily interested in two main hypotheses: the Culture of Violence Hypothesis and the Functional Violence Hypothesis. Using the SCCS along with variables from Broude & Greene (1976) and Ember & Ember (1992), the study concluded that warring societies were associated with a greater intolerance of rape, contradicting the Culture of Violence Hypothesis, whereas wife beating, as well as tolerance towards rape, increased with scarcity of women, in line with the evolutionary Functional Violence Hypothesis.

  7. Cultural complexity will be positively related to restrictive extramarital sex norms (187).Broude, Gwen J. - Extramarital sex norms in cross-cultural perspective, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the double standard regarding extramarital norms for men and women in relation to other sociocultural factors. Results suggest that a double standard is significantly related to post-partum sex taboos, hypermasculinity, and father absence.

  8. Warfare within polities will be positively associated with cultural tightnessJackson, Joshua Conrad - A global analysis of cultural tightness in non-industrial societies, 2020 - 2 Variables

    This article builds on previous cross-country and cross-state research into Tightness-Looseness (TL) theory, which proposes relationships between the incidence of ecological threat and cultural tightness, as well as tightness’ downstream effects on belief in a moralizing high god, inter-group contact and authoritarian leadership. To evaluate the generalizability of TL theory beyond complex cultures, the authors test these relationships among 86 nonindustrial societies from the ethnographic record. A structural equation model is presented of the results for nonindustrial societies; it is generally in accord with previous findings from more complex societies. Because the nonindustrial sample is more variable, they also look at relationships between societal complexity and kinship heterogeneity, aspects that vary in nonindustrial societies.
