Comparative Study of Self-Esteem Among Black, White, and Latino Women.
Whittaker, Sandra V.
This exploratory study investigates the effects of race and other demographic characteristics (age, marital status, number of children, number of dependent children, and job status) on the self-esteem of 144 black, white and latino female subjects. Predicted differences due to race were confirmed. Marital status and the interaction of marital status with race, marital status with dependent children, and marital status, race and dependent children were also found as significant. This paper includes a discussion of the conceptual and methodological difficulties in the study of self-esteem. (Author)
