Epstein, Yakov M.; And Others
Journal of Social Issues, 32, 2, 109-118, Spr 76
In an investigation of the importance of cleanliness as well as race as a determinant of preference, 60 white and 56 black children of both sexes in grades two, three and four of a non-segregated New York city public school indicated their relative preferences for four photographs varying in cleanliness and race. Results indicate that cleanliness is the more potent determinant. (Author/JM)
