Examples of Checking Pinpoint dates for SCCS and the Ethnographic Atlas

Your confusion is legitimate. Although sharing foci in space/group the objective in SCCS was always to take best described EARLIEST societies, so someone should check all 186 to see how often this occurs. The transfer in the dataset from EA to the 186 was done after the 1969 article was published and sofar as I know there was no accompanying publication to explain the temporal differences.

how do I know if this applies to the focal community in the SCCS as well as the EA?

You don't, without checking the earlier sources.

Sometimes a quick Google check (here: 4th item) tells you on what page to look http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=Cushing,+Stevenson+Zuni+inheritance&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 and if you have the SAR bibliography at http://intersci.ss.uci.edu/wiki/index.php/72_Society_SCCS_book_collection_at_the_School_for_Advanced_Research,_Santa_Fe and one or both sources are there (other books for SCCS are in their catalog) you can visit their library

Hi Doug,
Thanks for this, but I am still confused. For example, I have been looking at the inheritance data for Zuni. 

This is the relevant entry in Murdock & White (1969):

149. Zuni (Nh4: 183) of Province 162 (Pueblo-Navaho). Language: Zunian. Economy: A. Organization: I, M. Focus: The village of Zuni (35˚ to 35˚30'N, 108˚30' to 109˚W) in 1880, approximately the beginning of the field work of both Cushing and Stevenson. HRAF: NT23 (a). Authorities: Cushing, Stevenson.

Here is the corresponding entry from the relevant installment of the EA:

Nh4: Zuni. L: 35N, 109W. T: 1910. P: 2,250 in 1941.
Eggan, F. 1950. Social Organization of the Western Pueblos. Chicago.
Kroeber, A. L. 1917. Zuni Kin and Clan. Anth. Pap. Amer. Mus. Nat. Hist. 18: 39-204.
Stevenson, M. C. 1904. The Zuni Indians. Ann. Rep. Bur. Amer. Ethn. 23: 233-608.
Smith, W., and J. M. Roberts. 1954. Zuni Law. Pap. Peabody Mus. Amer. Arch. Ethn., Harvard Univ. 43: 1-175.

So it seems that this particular society is pinpointed in space but not in time (1880 in the SCCS vs. 1910 in the EA). The reason this seems relevant is that there is a comment in another installment of the EA that "A man's land is inherited by his daughters". Now, how do I know if this applies to the focal community in the SCCS as well as the EA?

Many thanks,
Laura

And so, yes, the pinpointed inheritance data do exist for the SCCS communities from most of those EA codings.

Hi Doug,

I have a question abou the SCCS inheritance codes (variables 278 and 279).

If I understand correctly, these data were coded for the societies in the EA, which means that they are not necessarily pinpointed to the communities in the SCCS.

Could you please confirm whether this is correct? If so, do pinpointed inheritance data exist for the SCCS communities?

Many thanks, Laura
