Fernandez-Kelly, Patricia; Schauffler, Richard
International Migration Review, v28 n4 p662-89 Win 1994
Investigated the meaning of segmented assimilation by examining the effects of physical location, mode of reception, and membership in particular social networks on characteristics such as fluency in English, school performance, and self-perception. Results among various ethnic groups show that identification of oneself as an immigrant protects a child from some of the deleterious effects of assimilation. (GR)
