  1. Virginity tests are positively associated with excision (196)Ericksen, Karen Paige - Female genital mutilations in africa, 1989 - 2 Variables

    Female genital mutilations within Africa are associated with strong fraternal interest groups, virginity tests, and conservative permarital sex norms.

  5. Various predictors of responses to malfeasance are associated with the responses of classic blood feuds, formal adjudication, individual self-redress (71)Ericksen, Karen Paige - "Blood feuds": cross-cultural variations in kin group vengeance, 1992 - 3 Variables

    Feuding and other responses to malfeasance are examined cross-culturally. The geographic distribution of responses are presented and odds ratios/logistic regression models are employed in analyzing the effect of socio-economic, historical and ecological variables on responses to malfeasance. Codes are included.

  9. Social stratification will be associated with the origins and transmission of female genital modification. (174)Ross, Cody T. - The Origins and Maintenance of Female Genital Modification across Africa, 2016 - 2 Variables

    The researchers develop and compare two evolutionary models to evaluate the association between social stratification and female genital modification(FGMo) in a cross-cultural African sample, theorizing that social hierarchy creates competition for high-value males in which FGMo acts as a costly demonstration of paternity certainty. Although the null model outperforms the stratification model when applied to empirical data, an association between FGMo and stratification is found in the expected direction. The authors suggest that while stratification may be an important factor in the de novo origins of FGMo, spread and persistence of the practice subsequently become more heavily dependent on other selective forces.
