Abstract

The incidence of complex families and households in sixteenth-century Mexico is analyzed using data from the Nahuatl censuses, specifically the censuses of two villages in Morelos translated into English by S. L. Cline in 1993. The author concludes that high mortality was no obstacle to the formation of complex families in this population.
