My main independent variable is a dichotomous, moderator is the Race variable (Hispanics, Non-Hispanic Black, Non-Hispanic Asian and Non-Hispanic White (ref)) and outcome is also a dichotomous. I have created the race categories into dummy variable except the reference group. I am doing an adjusted logistic model and added the interaction term using SAS. Should I include all the interaction terms (independent*Hispanics independent*Non-Hispanic Black independent*Non-Hispanic Aaian) in one model or in 3 different models? My result is significant for Hispanics and Non-Hispanic Black. How should I interpret this?
In the past I have always coded so that I have Non-Hispanic Black, Non-Hispanic White, then South Asian, Native American, etc. However, I find more and more people respond as both Hispanic and South Asian, Native American, etc. My dataset is small (n=33) so I wasn't sure if it I should code as 2 or more races or if they should be counted independently as South Asian and Latinx. If you have code in SPSS that you could share that would be also appreciated!

In collecting demographic variables, I do not need a specific scale? correct?
I can make my own stuff such as: marital status (Married, Single, Divorced, Widow, Domestic relationship), occupation (Full-time, part-time, unemployed), race (White, Hispanic or Latino, Black or African American, Native American, American Indian, Asian / Pacific Islander, Other), gender (Male, Female, other), caregivers' relationship to the recipient (Daughter, Son, Spouse, Daughter/Son in law, Other), Caregiver’s age (18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, over 55), overall health (Poor, Reasonable, Good, or Excellent), years of providing care (1-3, 4-6, over 6), number of children under 18 years old (0-1, 2-3, 4-5, over 5).
I am interested in connecting with others engaged in documenting your work on this Census which is the first time it has ever been online. i work mainly with Florida immigrants and my preliminary work on our project points to a great deal of resistance to participating. Other research shows that Latino children are the largest undercounted group. This is not good for funding prevention programming and/or educational interventions. What are your experiences?
Assume you have a categorical variable such as race (1= Black 2=white 3= Hispanic 4= others) and a dependable variable income. suppose I want to know how education affects income based on one's race, and I am only interested in knowing how education interacts with two races, and not the other race categories. Is it okay if I created binary variables such as race1 race2 race3 race4, and compare for example race2 compared to race1, with only an interaction of race2 * education as in 1 below ( race one as a reference category) without doing the same for the other categories? Or do all other categories need interactions too (as in equation 2) even though my interest is only race1 and race2-education variable interaction?
1. Y = race2 race3 race4 education race2* education
as opposed to :
2. Y = race2 race3 race4 education race2* education race3*education race3* education
We are looking for manuscripts measuring 4-compartment body composition in African-American and Hispanic-American youth and adults. What about other races/ethnicities outside of the United States?
We performed a systematic review and only identified about 175 articles across ALL races and ethnicities, and are surprised there aren't more. We are a little worried that we haven't found them all.
Can we get some help?
I have a list of 19 questions that I can provide. I am conducting a qualitative descriptive study - and have incorporated the Hoover-Dempsey & Sandler Parental Model (2005)
My research questions are as follows:
R1. How do Latino parents of elementary students describe their experiences with the IEP collaborations and process?
R2. How do Latino parents of elementary students describe their role during the development of the IEP collaborations and process?
R3. How do Latino parents describe the factors necessary for active, meaningful, parent participation during the IEP collaborations and process?
R4. How do Latino parents describe obstacles to meaningful, active, parent participation during the IEP collaborations and process?
America's educational system is in crisis. According to the research, 47% of high school students in America's 50 largest cities drop out of high school before graduation. Of the remainder, 20% leave high school with a fifth grade reading, writing, and math competency or lower!
Twelve years ago I had suggested that American colleges and universities needed to provide more opportunities for Hispanics, Native Americans, and People of Color to earn doctoral degrees in business. Although 53% of doctoral candidates in business were minorities at that time, very few of those doctoral candidates were American-born minorities. The attached paper documents that a hybrid doctoral program in business schools could be implemented that would be profit generating while enabling students to continue to work full-time.
Why have American colleges and universities failed to address this important social policy issue -- especially when we are now in a knowledge-, wisdom-, and information-based economy and so many of those who drop out of high school desperately need role models? In today's difficult financial times, why are business schools not seeing this type of revenue generating opportunity as both financially wise and socially important?
I have considered the doleta.gov for my study, but it is not Hispanic specific. Therefore, the variables for questions will cover all migrant workers, although the Hispanic makes 80% of the total migrant farmworkers. Any idea? can I still use the same data from the doleta, or look for new dataset for Hispanic migrant farmworkers?
Geneticists have made risk assessments of developing Alzheimer's by age, gender, and APOE genotype. Christensen et al. (2008), in "Incorporating ethnicity into genetic risk assessment for Alzheimer disease" have further refined the assessment by ethnicity but only between African American and White. Has anyone also incorporated Hispanic/Latino ethnicity into a risk assessment by APOE genotype?
I am not a speaker of Spanish, but I teach media and am wondering about the dialect or accent of Spanish used in Spanish language media across the United States.
Is it based on the version of Spanish spoken in the region where the media outlet exists? Is there an overall preferred accent (like Midwest English is the preferred American English accent)?
What form of Spanish should a "Spanish Media" academic program in the US teach?
There has been plenty of research regarding the plain facts and statistics asked in the question, but I have yet to encounter any information regarding the underlying reasons for these prevailing statistics and facts. Sure, one could gather that an underlying fear of racial minorities, especially those living in poverty, makes their crimes seem worse than other minorities — but does research exist to corroborate these statements on people's popular opinion?
I am looking for information on the quality of high school education of the LRGV, specifically with teaching the Hispanic culture. I hope to find information such as evaluations done in schools. I would really appreciate the help. Thank you!
We are studying the origins of the literature during the colonial period or better called Viceroyalty of New Spain, but we are discussing which of the texts are better to produce an identity of the habitants of the region.
I am searching for a self-report inventory to measure the Latino cultural value of simpatia. This value has been defined in the literature as emphasizing positive behaviors (e.g., friendliness, politeness, respect of others) in agreeable situations, and de-emphasizing negative behaviors in conflictual circumstances. Implicit in this definition is an avoidance of conflict.
I have some degree of fluency in Spanish, so I am also open to receiving information about Spanish language articles and measures.
