Cultural Orientation across Three Generations of Hispanic Adolescents.
Perez, William; Padilla, Amado M.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v22 n3 p390-98 Aug 2000
A study of the cultural orientation of 203 Mexican American adolescents who were first-, second-, or third-generation Americans found that Hispanic cultural orientation decreased and American cultural orientation increased in linear trends across the three generations. However, Hispanic culture did not disappear completely, and most adolescents retained allegiance to Hispanic familial values. (Author/SV)
