Acculturation and Post-migration Stress in Middle-aged Chinese Immigrant Women in Philadelphia: Variation between the Fujianese and the non-Fujianese WomenJournal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment (2012)
This study examines acculturation and post-migration stress in 204 Fujianese immigrant women and 162 female immigrants from other parts of China currently residing in Philadelphia. Bivariate analyses showed variation in demographic characteristics between the Fujianese and non-Fujianese women was marginal, and both reported a unidimensional process of acculturation. However, the Fujianese women showed a higher level of post-migration stress. After controlling for demographic characteristics, more acculturated women reported greater post-migration stress. Further, separate multiple regression analyses for the Fujianese and the non-Fujianese women revealed different post-migration stress models.
