  1. “[A]mong sedentary cultures a significantly higher percentage of unilocal societies must be unilineal than among nonsedentary ones” (94).Korotayev, Andrey V. - Unilocal residence and unilineal descent: a reconsideration, 2004 - 3 Variables

    This study focuses on the development of unilineal descent, reviewing previous theories and testing additional factors to explain the relationship between unilineal descent and unilocal residence. Results suggest four key factors leading to a low association between these two variables: insufficient alternatives to unilocal residence rule, instability of communal composition, absence of sedentary settlement pattern, and small average community size. A model linking all variables from the paper is presented.

  10. Political centralization will be negatively associated with plunder as an aim of warfareZinkina, Julia - Circumscription Theory of the Origins of the State: A Cross-Cultural Re-analysis, 2016 - 2 Variables

    In this article, the authors reevaluate Carneiro's (1970) circumscription theory of state formation. They do this by examining relationships between the degree of political hierarchy and whether warfare is conducted for conquest, land acquisition, or plunder. While they find evidence that this theory is plausible in some situations, there is not enough to support the theory wholesale. Thus, they suggest that other theories of state formation should be investigated.
