This study investigates potential factors increasing the risk of group fission. Three factors were manipulated; 1) the presence of a subgroup faultline (a subgroup of newcomers admitted to the group at the same time); 2) the divisibility of a resource (whether the group resource could be divided into two equal shares); and 3) group size (small, medium versus large-sized groups). The findings suggested that fission was significantly more likely if the resource could be divided equally between the two fission groups. More importantly, the presence of subgroups increased the likelihood of a fission when the resource could be divided equally. Group size did not affect fission likelihood in this study.
