the two things that stand out to me are:
- the absolute nuclear family does not happen anywhere outside the hajnal line (in europe, anyway).
- the authoritarian (“stem”) family mostly happens within the boundaries of the hajnal line.
on that second point, there are some outliers — ireland, the southern tip of finland, some bits of slovakia and hungary — but mostly todd’s authoritarian family occurs within the hajnal line limits. (the southern tip of finland looks like the hajnal line should just be moved a bit to the north….)
i don’t know what any of this means — if it means anything — but i just thought i’d share. (^_^)
