Maharaj, Sherry I.; Connolly, Jennifer A.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v9 n2 p218-40 Apr 1994
A study investigated the ethnocultural composition of the peer networks of 896 suburban high school students. Results indicated that gender mix, setting mix, and frequency of contact significantly differed across homogenous, integrated, and heterogeneous peer structures, demonstrating the mitigating impact of environmental factors on the interplay between ethnocultural affiliation and peer relations.
