Personal Identity


The Personal Identity instrument obtained information related to racial and ethnic identity, which was originally collected in PHDCN Demographic File, Wave 1, 1994-1997 (ICPSR 13581) and PHDCN Demographic File, Wave 2, 1997-2000 (ICPSR 13609). It also contained future orientation and discrimination questions, as well as questions relating to group importance that were drawn from the Puerto Rican Adolescent Survey.

WAVE 3: The Personal Identity instrument (PDF 5.0MG) was administered to subjects in Cohorts 6 to 18.
