Phinney, Jean S.; Ferguson, Debra L.; Tate, Jerry D.
Child Development, v68 n5 p955-69 Oct 1997
Used two path models to examine the influence of ethnic identity and intergroup contact on adolescents' attitudes toward other ethnic groups: (1) ethnic identity increases with age and predicts positive in-group attitudes which contribute to positive out-group attitudes; and (2) diversity outside school leads to more out-group interaction in school and positive out-group attitudes. Results support both models. (Author)
