Abstract: Argues that G. P. Murdock's (1971) analysis of standardized behavior associated with pairs of cross-sex kin emphasizes the "nearly identical distribution" throughout the world. While recognizing the broad similarities, certain differences between continental areas are noted that are related to specific social factors, including the structure of descent groups and the nature of marriage arrangements. Data from 197 societies in the Murdock et al Ethnographic Atlas are presented for relationships between various cross-sex kin.
