Yancey, Antronette K.; Aneshensel, Carol S.; Driscoll, Anne K.
Journal of Black Psychology, v27 n2 p190-208 May 2001
Investigated ethnic identity among urban adolescents using the revised Multigroup Ethnic Identity Measure. Interviews with White, Asian American, Hispanic American, and African American youths indicated that Whites scored significantly lower than the other groups, whose scores were similar to one another. The similarity in measurement properties across groups indicates that the instrument is suitable for both interethnic and intraethnic comparisons. (SM)
