Marin, Gerardo; And Others
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v9 n2 p183-205 Jun 1987
A 12-item acculturation scale developed for Hispanics correlated highly with the respondents' generation, length of residence in the United States, age at arrival, ethnic self-identification, and with an acculturation scale. Language use, media preferences, and ethnic social relations were the three factors accounting for 67.6 percent of the total variance. (JHZ)
