Sociobiology, Status, and Parental Investment in Sons and Daughters: Testing the Trivers-Willard Hypothesis.
Powell, Brian; Freese, Jeremy
American Journal of Sociology, v104 n6 p1704-1743 May 1999
Explains that the Trivers-Willard hypothesis says that high-status parents favor sons over daughters while low-status parents favor daughters over sons. Examines whether the Trivers-Willard hypothesis is warranted by testing whether its predictions hold true among parents of adolescents in the United States. Finds little evidence to support the Trivers-Willard hypothesis. (CMK)
