Children's Use of Sample Size and Diversity Information within Basic-Level Categories.
Gutheil, Grant; Gelman, Susan A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v64 n2 p159-74 Feb 1997
Three studies examined the ability of 8- and 9-year-olds and young adults to use sample monotonicity and diversity information according to the similarity-coverage model of category-based induction. Found that children's difficulty with this information was independent of category level, and may be based on preferences for other strategies concerning category membership and perceptual similarity.
