Yang, Renxin; Blodgett, Billy P.
Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, v9 n1-2 p135-53 2000
Analysis of national survey data on 2,391 African Americans and 9,419 Caucasians examined the interplay among socioeconomic status, status attainment, and race in shaping self-esteem. No racial differences were found in self-esteem when gender, other background variables, and life-choice variables were constant. Education and positive reasons for leaving home most influenced self-esteem. (Contains 54 references.) (Author/TD)
