Abstract

In the present study conducted among Dutch children age 10-12, we focus on preferences for contact with members of different ethnic minority groups, and on contextual variables as well as individual characteristics. Scalogram analysis indicated consensus on an ethnic hierarchy or cumulative pattern of ethnic group preferences. This pattern was shared by children low and high on prejudice, and by both boys and girls. Also, multilevel analysis showed that preferences for contact with the ingroup and with out-groups was determined not only by individual characteristics but also by the classroom context. Finally, this context also affected the ethnic hierarchy: Children were less likely to report an ethnic hierarchy if the percentage of Dutch classmates was low.
