Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to observe the correlation between ethnic identity and gender as well as the relationship between ethnic identity and one’s country of origin. The study participants (n=335) were recruited through the social media sites Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, and Reddit. Participants completed the 15-question Multigroup Ethnic Inventory Measure (MEIM) and a Demographic Questionnaire, all done completely online. It was hypothesized that participants’ level of ethnic identity as measured by MEIM scores would differ significantly between the genders. Furthermore, it was posited that participant’s level of ethnic identity would differ significantly between countries of origin. Both hypotheses were supported. Implications of the study findings and recommendations for future research are discussed.
