This paper reports the results of a holocultural study of the relationship between population density and human behavior. The findings indicate that high levels of density are not a cause of stress in humans. Crowding rarely leads to pathological behavior or the mistreatment of children in a sample of fifty nonliterate societies. Specific statistical tests are used to rule out the possibility that the results of this study can be attributed to methodological shortcomings.
