Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document G. N. Appell examines the relationship between the Rungus domestic developmental cycle and residence. Uxorilocal residence is usually the first choice for newlyweds. A couple may move to the husband's village after the birth of several children, creating a pattern of bilocal residence. Average stay in a long-house is three years. Residence does not activate any permanent rights to land. Choice of residence is influenced by the pull of kin, the mother-daughter tie being the strongest, according to Appell. After the mother's death a couple and their family may be pulled to the husband' s family long-house and village. Another important factor is the allocation of labor. The women's long-house group provides childcare for young children, whereas older male children form work groups in the swiddens.
