Abstract

Using the 1979 Chicano Survey, this thesis examines three measures of ethnic identity as they relate to ethno-political attitudes and hypothesized structural determinants. While this study indicates that the three measures may each tap into separate dimensions of the self concept, it is determined that statement of interaction preference is the measure most suited to contemporary theories of ethnic identity.
