Abstract

This paper presents data on the rates of in- and outmarriage for the Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans in Los Angeles and Hawaii. In 1979 in Los Angeles, the Japanese rates of outmarriages were the highest (60.6%), followed by the Chinese (41.2%) and the Korean (27.6%). The figures were reversed for Hawaii in 1980, with the Korean rates of outmarriage the highest (83%), followed by the Chinese (76%), then the Japanese (59%). Moreover, females of all three groups outmarried at a higher rate than males. A social-psychological model based on the ethnic group and its interaction with the dominant community was developed. Variables to be considered included historical factors, the family, the community, personal factors, and the receptivity of the dominant community.
