A Comparison of African American and Non-Hispanic White Males' Perception of Familism through the Middle School Years
Horton, Eloise Gail
Journal of Family Social Work, v10 n2 p1-15 2006
The purpose of this longitudinal study was to determine if there were changes in familism scores among a sample of African American and non-Hispanic White youths as they progressed through middle school, and if changes differed by race. Results indicated that African American subjects reported higher levels of familism than their non-Hispanic White peers throughout middle school, reaching statistical significance in both seventh and eighth grades. However, scores for both groups decreased slightly between the sixth and ninth grades. The proportion of youth reporting low familism did not differ significantly by race in either the sixth or seventh grade. However, it approached significance in the eighth grade.
