An Examination of the Factor Structure of the Index of Race-Related Stress among a Sample of African American Adolescents.
Seaton, Eleanor K.
Journal of Black Psychology, v29 n3 p292-307 Aug 2003
Administered the Index of Race-Related Stress (IRRS), previously used with adults and college students, to urban African American high school students. Results provided evidence of validity for the IRRS, particularly for measuring race-related stress among adolescents. The measure required some modification, including deleting some items and rewording some questions to make them relevant to adolescents. The modified IRRS provided evidence of individual, collective/institutional, and cultural racism. (SM)
