Research on this study was initiated during the summer of 1964 while the authors were members of the Summer Institute of Cross-Cultural Research, which was held by the Department of Anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh; the Institute was sponsored by a National Science Foundation grant. The authors are indebted to fellow members of the Institute and to its Director, Melvin Ember, for stimulating discussions concerning this study, and to Richard B. Darlington of Cornell University for advice on statistical procedures.
