A question in the MIDUS Study shows that fewer than 10 percent of white Americans completely fail to identify with their race. Let's see which factors predict identifying closely with one's race among whites.
Standardized OLS Regression Coefficients (sample size = 3,499)
Church attendance .06*
Negative emotionality .05*
Openness to experience -.06*
* statistically significant
Except for age and education, all of the predictors are significantly related to identifying with one's race. These categories are associated with greater identification: females, churchgoers, those high on extraversion, agreeableness, negative emotionality, conscientiousness, and low on openness to experience. All of the relationships are weak.
