It is the contention of this article that the incidence and types of voluntary associations in immigrant communities can be employed as an indicator of the differential weight of cultural-ideological and structural factors in the articulation of such communities with the receiving society. It is also held in this paper that the relative similarity of cultural-ideological variables in the Colombian and Dominican communities, revealed by the attribution of a common "Hispanic" identity, tends to have less weight in this articulation than the structural differences between their places of origin and the disparity between place of origin and destination.
