Sex differences in social focus across the life cycle in humans

Kunal Bhattacharya, Asim Ghosh, Daniel Monsivais, Robin I. M. Dunbar, Kimmo Kaski

In this paper, we focus on and seek insight into the evolutionary dynamics of the social fabric of human life histories based on studying their techno-social communication patterns. To do this, we analyse a large mobile phone dataset and study the structure of the individual level or egocentric networks. In general, we focus on their static structure for different non-overlapping periods, ranging from a month to a full year. In everyday life for both humans  and other primates [time represents a direct measure of relationship quality. Because time is limited and social investment is costly in terms of time individuals are forced to choose how to distribute that time across the members of their network Here, we use cross-sectional data on the frequency and duration of phone calls to examine how the pattern of social investment varies across the life cycle in the two sexes.
