The Ethnographic Atlas (EA) includes over 1,260 societies and was intended by its creator George Peter Murdock to be an exhaustive list of described anthropological cultures. Each society is pinpointed to a time and place focus. The journal Ethnology published a list of the societies and some coded variables beginning in 1962 and continuing thereafter (sometimes intermittently) for a number of years. To facilitate research for those wanting to code their own variables from eHRAF World Cultures, the HRAF staff has flagged those documents that provide an appropriate match to the EA. HRAF has been collaborating with the producers of the database D-PLACE, which includes EA variables as well as links to those societies in eHRAF World Cultures.
