- "The data from the Standard Sample were purchased on a computer tape from HRAF (the Human Relations Area Files) in New Haven, Connecticut."
- "Whyte took a 50% sample of the 186 societies and thus chose to use only 93 of the societies. Ross also chose a 50% sample of the 186 societies in his coding and found 3 of them uncodable and so ended up with 90 societies. Hupka obtained his societies from the HRAF files and came up with only 80 cultures that were in the Standard Sample. Sanday found only 156 societies of the Standard Sample were sufficiently codable for her purposes. Broude also found that many of the societies in the Standard Sample lacked sufficient information on enough of her variables to be useful. She used between 31 and 102 societies for the codes I used in this book."

Reiss suggests “For some interesting cross-cultural work on gender roles” at that time to see these further studies. They are open to DEf reanalysis with the Ethnographic Atlas database in the first study, and to DEf reanalysis with the STCS database in the second.

Reiss's Wheel Theory of Love
The Reiss's Wheel Theory of Love is another interesting sociological theory proposed by Sociologist Ira Reiss and his associates. It was a theory that created research on the subject of love for decades. The Reiss's Wheel Theory of Love states that there are four stages of love which are: (1) rapport; (2) self-revelation; (3) mutual dependency; and (4) personality need fulfillment.

Abstract: Abstract ideas and concepts are understood more easily and fully if some visual representation can be shown. Reiss developed a graphic concept of how a primary social relationship develops. The basic purpose here is to review this theory and to propose an alternative and dynamic graphic model of his concept to aid in the teaching and understanding of the development of primary social relationships.
