Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v20 n2 p131-54 May 1998
Use of the Orthogonal Cultural Identification Scale with 2,048 Mexican American and American Indian adolescents found that, as predicted, identification with one culture was independent of identification with another; cultural identification was strongly rooted in the family; and the scale was factor invariant across gender, grade level, and ethnic group. Contains 25 references and the scale. (SV)
