The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between (a) individual, family, school, and social factors and (b) the social cohesion level among Mexican and Asian adolescents. The study explored social support and self-esteem as they related to a school’s social cohesion.
Respondents were 985 Mexican and 336 Asian adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 who had participated in a quantitative study via secondary data from the 2011–2012 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) conducted by the University of California, Los Angeles, Center for Health Policy Research. The results indicated a statistically significant relationship between (a) level of social cohesion in Mexican and Asian adolescents and (b) family, school, self-esteem, and social support. Future studies using a larger sample were recommended. Implications and relevance to social work practice were discussed.
