This article assesses the amount of sharing in cultural beliefs. Interviews
were conducted with more than 800 informants about the
causes, symptoms, and treatments for AIDS, diabetes, the common
cold, empacho, and mal de ojo. Interviews were conducted with
Puerto Ricans in Connecticut; Mexican Americans in South Texas;
Mexicans in Guadalarjara, Mexico; and Guatemalans in rural
Guatemala. A strong majority response (> 66%) in each sample for
each illness was used to estimate group beliefs about the presence/
absence of features that best described each illness. Those high concordance
features were then compared across samples to see if illness
descriptions tend to be shared across samples or if they tend to
be distinctive or unique across geographical regions and ethnic
groups. Results indicate a high degree of sharing across the populations
with little unique variation due to regional or ethnic variation.
