Ni de aquí, ni de allá: Puerto Rican Acculturation- Acculturative Stress Profiles and Depression

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: Acculturation-acculturative stress profiles and their association with depression symptoms were examined in a sample of mainland Puerto Ricans (N = 367) using latent profile analysis. Methods: Bidimensional behavioral acculturation, bidimensional ethnic identity, and acculturative stress were used as indicators to derive profiles. Differences in depressive symptoms across latent profile members were determined using an automatic mixture modeling with continuous outcomes approach. Results: Three profiles were identified, each demonstrating a distinctive configuration of adherence to bidimensional behavioral acculturation, bidimensional ethnic identity, and level of acculturative stress. The largest profile resembled individuals following a partial marginalization strategy. Participants in this profile were also reported more depression symptoms than all other participants. Conclusions: The identification of a large partial marginalization profile offers important information about sociocultural indicators of depression among Puerto Ricans living in the United States.
