Abstract

Intermarriage is one of the most salient demographic features of Hawaii. Between 1983 and 1994, 46% of all marriages contracted in Hawaii were racially exogamous. Over 80% of these intermarriages were formed among four major ethnic groups in the islands: Caucasians, Japanese, Filipinos and Hawaiians. This paper examines socioeconomic status exchange in outgroup marriage. Status homogamy emerges as the most important pattern of mate selection. In a broad sense, people choose their mate on the basis of equal socioeconomic status, either within or across boundaries of race and ethnicity. Gender differences are very small, indicating that status is equally important for both men and women in choosing a marital partner. However, these patterns suggest that groups of very high and very low status have a very restricted marriage market. Continued intermarriage also raises questions about how to measure race and ethnicity in the islands. Les mariages entre personnes de differentes races est en des caracteristiques démographique le plus marquant de Hawaii. Entre 1983 et 1994, 46% de tout les mariage contracté a Hawaii etaient racialement. Plus de 80% de ces mariage entre difféntes races étaient. Contracté parmi quatre groupes ethnique des iles: Blancs, Japonaise, Fihpins et Hawaiian. Ce texte traite l'échange de situation socioéconomique des les sortes de mariage. Le Statut apparait comme la methode la plus importante dans les Choix de compagnon. En general les gens choisisent leur compagnon ayant les memes situation socioéconomique, soit parmi ou en dohors de leur races et leur ethnicité. La difference sout tries petites, ce qúindiquequele prestige est egalement important á l'homme aussi bien qúaux femmes en choississant un partenaire matmonaile. Cependant ces formules, suggerent que les groupes ayant de tres haut statut et ceux ayant des tres bas statut ont marche matrimonial tres limité. La continuation des mariage, entre differente races et Ethricilé soulevé des questions apropos de la façon de mesurer les races et ethnicité dans les iles. El intercasamiento es uno de los rasgos demográficos mas sobresalientes de Hawaii. Entre 1983 y 1990, 46% de todos los matrimonios contratados en Hawaii eran racialmente exógamos. Mas de 80% de estos matrimonios ocurrieron entre cuatro grupos étnicos en las islas: Caucásios., Japoneses, Filipinos y Hawaiianos. Este artículo investiga el intercambio socio-económico de condición entre los matrimonios fuera de grupo. La condición de homogamia surge como el modelo mas importante en la selección de cónyuge. En el sentido más amplio, personas eligen su pareja pensando en una condición de igualdad socio-económico, sea dentro o afuera de límites de raza e identidad. Diferencias entre los sexos son muy pequeñas, indicando que la condición es de important a igual para ambos hombres y mujeres al elegir cónyuge. Sin embargo, estos modelos sugieren que los gropus de muy alta y de muy baja condición tienen elecciones muy restringidos El continuo intercasamiento fomenta preguntas sobre como medir raza y etnicidad en las islas.
