  6. The status of the elderly will be positively associated with familial structural complexity (432).Lee, Gary R. - Family structure and the status of the elderly: a preliminary empirical study, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the status of the elderly cross-culturally, proposing that familial complexity, unlineal descent, and unilocal residence are predictors of high status. The authors theorize that elderly male status will be highest in patrilineal and patrilocal societies; elderly female status will be highest in matrilineal and matrilocal societies. Some support is found for these patterns, but the authors ultimately regard them as too simple to adequately predict status of the elderly.

  10. Esteem of the aged will be associated with society type (433).Sheehan, Tom - Senior esteem as a factor of socioeconomic complexity, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates the treatment and position of elderly persons cross-culturally, proposing an association with society type. Analysis suggests that semisedentary or seminomadic peoples treat seniors with lower esteem while nucleated peasant communities treat seniors with more esteem. Esteem is defined as "the intersection of decision-making role or resource control and quality of received behavior" (433).
