  1. Contrary to Robert Redfield's beliefs, there will be more than a single overriding factor in the "folk-urban continuum".Hickman, John M. - Dimensions of a Complex Concept: A Method Exemplified, 1962 - 4 Variables

    The present study examines the validity of Robert Redfield's one-dimensional "folk-urban continuum" in a sample of 70 pre-industrial societies. As hypothesized, a factor analysis revealed that there is more than a single overriding factor about the "folk-urban continuum." These variables include kinship organization, size-complexity, and relative isolation. The author also contends there is an inverse relationship between relative isolation and size-complexity.
