dc.description.abstract Earlier research in adolescent identity development focused on the variables of development as individual effects. Important variables, like gender and race, were not explored interactively. In order to test the interaction of race and gender, a questionnaire was administered to examine ego-identity, self-esteem, and ethnic-identity achievement. 78 subjects were from various ethnic backgrounds and were in their first or second years of college. For ethnic identity, Ethnic-Whites scored as high as Black subjects. Tukey pos-hoc comparisons were run comparing the ethnic identity scores. These results showed that Black subjects and Ethnic-White subjects were significantly different as compared to White subjects. There were no gender differences. Possible explanations for these findings are discussed.
