  1. "Firstborns receive more elaborate ceremonies at birth . . . are given more duties to perform, have authority over siblings, and receive more respect from siblings" (51)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Birth order in cross-cultural perspective, 1974 - 5 Variables

    This study examines the consequences of birth order; results suggest that the firstborn child is more likely to have social authority as they grow older (they have siblings’ respect, they control property or head kin groups, etc.). The authors suggest that this authority may be legitimated by extra attention firstborns receive though elaborate birth ceremonies and teknonymy.

  2. "Firstborn sons are likely to have more authority over siblings . . . than later born sons, are likely to inherit or otherwise gain control of more family land, livestock, or wealth, and are likely to be respected by siblings. . . . Firstborn daughters . . . receive relatively more respect than their same-sex siblings" (51)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Birth order in cross-cultural perspective, 1974 - 4 Variables

    This study examines the consequences of birth order; results suggest that the firstborn child is more likely to have social authority as they grow older (they have siblings’ respect, they control property or head kin groups, etc.). The authors suggest that this authority may be legitimated by extra attention firstborns receive though elaborate birth ceremonies and teknonymy.

  3. "Firstborn children or firstborn children of a given sex tend to increase parental status, to provide parents with a teknonym, to make parent marriage stable" (50-51)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Birth order in cross-cultural perspective, 1974 - 4 Variables

    This study examines the consequences of birth order; results suggest that the firstborn child is more likely to have social authority as they grow older (they have siblings’ respect, they control property or head kin groups, etc.).

  4. "Firstborn adult sons are more likely than average adult sons to have power or influence over other people, and they are more likely to head a kin group" (51)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Birth order in cross-cultural perspective, 1974 - 3 Variables

    This study examines the consequences of birth order; results suggest that the firstborn child is more likely to have social authority as they grow older (they have siblings’ respect, they control property or head kin groups, etc.).

  5. Final ceremonies are more likely to occur with longer duration of mourning (94)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Grief and mourning in cross-cultural perspective, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This book investigates individual and group responses to death and the problems that death can create in a society. Several hypotheses regarding grief and mourning, as well as their variation with other societal variables, are supported with cross-cultural tests.

  6. Women will be more likely to be blamed for childlessness than men (227).Rosenblatt, Paul C. - A cross-cultural study of responses to childlessness, 1973 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates responses to childlessness in a cross-cultural sample. Solutions to childlessness appear universal, and magico-religious-ethnomedical solutions seem the most likely to be tried first. Empirical analysis also shows that women are blamed for childlessness more often than men, which the authors suggest could be due to women’s lower status.

  7. "For the two measures of dependence frustration, the correlations with importance of romantic love as a basis for marriage are virtually zero" (338)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - A cross cultural study of child rearing and romantic love, 1966 - 3 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between satisfaction of early oral and dependence needs and concern with affection in adulthood. Data showed significant support for an association between the satisfaction of early oral needs (but not the satisfaction of dependence needs) and concern for affection in adulthood.

  8. "In societies with final funeral ceremonies, grief after the end of mourning is less likely to occur, the heavier the attendance at the final ceremony" (94)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Grief and mourning in cross-cultural perspective, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This book investigates individual and group responses to death and the problems that death can create in a society. Several hypotheses regarding grief and mourning, as well as their variation with other societal variables, are supported with cross-cultural tests.

  9. Of 7 measured inducements to attend final ceremonies, only 2 are associated with attendance: holding ceremonies for more than one death at a time and sex liberties at final ceremonies. Both correlations are based on a small number of cases (95)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Grief and mourning in cross-cultural perspective, 1976 - 7 Variables

    This book investigates individual and group responses to death and the problems that death can create in a society. Several hypotheses regarding grief and mourning, as well as their variation with other societal variables, are supported with cross-cultural tests.

  10. The degree of ghost fear is positively related to disposal of personal objects of the deceased and negatively related to a taboo on using the deceased's name. Otherwise ghost fear is unrelated to tie-breaking variables (160, 79)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Grief and mourning in cross-cultural perspective, 1976 - 6 Variables

    This book investigates individual and group responses to death and the problems that death can create in a society. Several hypotheses regarding grief and mourning, as well as their variation with other societal variables, are supported with cross-cultural tests.
