  1. "The residential proximity hypothesis predicts that a society's degree of terminological bifurcation will covary positively with degree of family extension" (253)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.

  2. ". . . the degree of extended family organization--from large extended, to small extended, to nonextended--should be positively associated with the degree of collateral [kin terminology] merging" (253)Witkowski, Stanley - A cross-cultural test of the proximity hypothesis, 1972 - 2 Variables

  3. "The residential proximity hypothesis suggests that institutionalized avoidance practices should be more likely to occur when the avoiding parties are living in the same household than when they are just living in the same community." [Mother-in-law/son-in-law avoidance increases with the degree of household co-residence] (249)Witkowski, Stanley - A cross-cultural test of the proximity hypothesis, 1972 - 2 Variables

  7. Community size will be positively associated with degree of endogamy (26).Witkowski, Stanley - Environmental familiarity and models of band organization, 1972 - 2 Variables

    This manuscript examines the relationship between contribution to subsistence and residence localization. This relationship is explored separately for both genders in both agricultural and non-agricultural societies. Results indicate that the relationship is positive for males in non-agricultural societies and negative for females in agricultural societies. Tests on community size, marginality, and endogamy are also conducted.

This relationship is explored separately for both genders in both agricultural and non-agricultural societies.

  9. Exogamy will be positively associated with cross-allegiance/ alliance between exogamous groups (262).Kang, Gay Elizabeth - The nature of exogamy in relation to cross-allegiance/alliance of social units, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This study tests a common theory that predicts a positive relationship between exogamy and cross-allegiances between social units. Results did not support this prediction. Cross-allegiances were only weakly related to cross-cousin marriage.

  10. In a subsample of societies with either high social complexity or low social complexity, exogamy will be positively associated with cross-allegiance/ alliance between exogamous groups (262).Kang, Gay Elizabeth - The nature of exogamy in relation to cross-allegiance/alliance of social units, 1979 - 3 Variables

    This study tests a common theory that predicts a positive relationship between exogamy and cross-allegiances between social units. Results did not support this prediction. Cross-allegiances were only weakly related to cross-cousin marriage.
