    Community population size and social heterogeneity: an empirical test.

    Wilson TC

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF SOCIOLOGY. 1986 Mar; 91(5):1,154-69.

    The author uses 1980 survey data for the United States to test the hypothesis that "community size leads to heterogeneity in values and attitudes that compose the sets of cultural elements of a subculture....An independent size-heterogeneity relationship is found for political and sexual attitudes....It is concluded that community size does increase social heterogeneity, but, consistent with subcultural theory, the relationship is restricted to subcultural elements."
