Abstract

This paper offers a concise statement of the theory of societal hierarchies known as stratification, a theory that, with proper data can describe the stratification system of any society at any given point in time. The theory provides each of the 21 (necessary and sufficient) parameters required for such a description. It begins with a brief review of the evolution of the theory from Ibn Khaldun (1377) to today.
