Carter, Jr., Harold"Societies with uxorilocal residence and/or large societies are more likely to have a professional military organization than are small societies with virilocal/patrilocal residence" (278).
Ember, Carol R.When included in a model testing the relationship between several variables and frequency of internal warfare, food production will be a significant predictor of internal warfare frequency (12).
Alford, RichardNaming institutions which confer social legitimacy will be positively associated with societal size, complexity, and use of unilineal descent (32).
Alford, RichardMore extensive naming ceremonies will be positively associated with societal complexity, population, use of patrilineal descent, and presence of high gods (47).
Alford, Richard'Given name' as the only component of the complete, personal name will be negatively associated with societal size and complexity (52).
Alford, RichardNames with semantic meaning will be negatively associated with societal size and complexity (60).
Alford, RichardProtective-derogatory naming will be positively associated with societal size, complexity, and stratification (64).
Alford, RichardSex-typing of names will be positively associated with societal size and complexity (67).

Alford, RichardAddress by kin term will be positively associated with kin-centered societies in which personal names lack surnames, patronym, or clan/lineage names (100).
Alford, RichardTaboos on the use of personal names will be negatively associated with societal complexity (109).
Alford, RichardTaboos on using the name of the deceased will be positively associated with name uniqueness, and negatively associated with belief in reincarnation, ancestor worship, societal size, and societal complexity (114).
Carneiro, Robert L.". . . if a society does increase significantly in size, and if at the same time it remains unified and integrated, it must elaborate its organization" (239)
Russett, BruceThe frequency of warfare will be negatively associated with consultation, checks on power, removal of leaders, extent of political participation, and absence of fission and positively associated with population (108).
Carol R. Ember There will be a replication of the Ember et al. (1992) internal warfare worldwide findings in eastern African societies.
Marcus J. Hamilton Aquatic foragers will have less space per person than hunters and gatherers.
Samuel E. BasselberryPopulations will be accurately predicted by floor area in multifamily dwellings using the formula population=1/6(floor area)
