Abstract or Summary
  • The study investigates relations among Norwegian-American ethnicity, ownership of ethnic articles, and selected other factors. Articles include clothing, textiles, and certain household objects. Hypotheses were drawn predicting relations between ethnic article ownership and ethnicity as expressed by ethnic practices and attitudes, and between ethnic article ownership and generation in America (first as compared to second and second as compared to third), travel to the mother country, communication with relatives, marital status (endogamy as compared to exogamy), educational level, and social class level. Measures used were developed for the study. Data were collected by means of questionnaires mailed to a selected sample of married women of Norwegian descent or whose husbands were of Norwegian descent, and were analyzed for statistical significance by means of simple correlation and the Behrens-Fisher test. Ethnic article ownership was found to be significantly related to ethnicity as expressed by ethnic practices, and to generation in America (first as compared to second), travel to the mother country, and communication with relatives. No significant relations were found to obtain in the cases of ethnicity as expressed by ethnic attitudes, or of generation in America (second as compared to third), marital status (endogamy as compared to exogamy), educational level, and social class level.
