Do the number of people at home affect when people leave? The horizontal axis now shows the number of people that lived at home. For some primates, crowding at home, predators in the area, and family relationships can all make a difference in when primates leave their family groups. Do our human Museum visitor data show a correlation between the age they left home and the number of people at home?
You are a primate
Like most social primates, you relate to members of your family in various ways. Learning about primate behavior can help you learn about social pressures that change the ways you interact with your family.
Research suggests that social changes in economics, religion, politics, food, and transportation can change our family behavior and how we live together. How has your role in the family changed?
