  1. Societies where ancestral hunting and gathering is the predominant subsistence mode will be negatively associated with the frequency of homosexuality (389).Barber, Nigel - Ecological and psychosocial correlates of male homosexuality: a cross-cultur..., 1998 - 2 Variables

    This study uses logistic regression to test the relationship between homosexuality and ecological and psychosocial variables. Significant associations were found between the frequency of homosexuality and type of agriculture, the occurrence of gathering, and psychosocial stressors in women's lives.

  2. Because the effects of psychological stress on male homosexuality operate prenatally, stressors in the lives of women will be positively associated with the frequency of homosexuality (389).Barber, Nigel - Ecological and psychosocial correlates of male homosexuality: a cross-cultur..., 1998 - 2 Variables

    This study uses logistic regression to test the relationship between homosexuality and ecological and psychosocial variables. Significant associations were found between the frequency of homosexuality and type of agriculture, the occurrence of gathering, and psychosocial stressors in women's lives.

  3. "Teen pregnancy will increase as the sex ratio declines" (30).Barber, Nigel - On the relationship between country sex ratios and teen pregnancy rates, 2000 - 2 Variables

    This study attempted to replicate earlier findings regarding population structure and teen pregnancy rates. Findings support the previous predictions that sex ratio, economic development, and latitude are all inversely related to teen birth rates.

  6. Economic development will be associated with less religiosity.Barber, Nigel - Country Religiosity Declines as Material Security Increases, 2012 - 4 Variables

    The present study attempts to replicate the Barber (2011) finding that more considerable security influences a country's disbelief in God. However, this research uses a more diverse sample and seeks to answer additional questions about religiosity and security than the previous work. The results are in line with all of the predictions and offer extra support to the uncertainty hypothesis.

  10. Economic development will tend to be associated with more disbelief in God.Barber, Nigel - A Cross-National Test of the Uncertainty Hypothesis Religious Belief, 2011 - 4 Variables

    The study looks at 137 countries and examines the relationship between disbelief in God and increased security in health, economic development and security. The findings provide additional support for the uncertainty hypothesis as there is a positive relationship between a country's health or financial growth/security and the population's disbelief in God.
