Researchers at University Medical Center Release New Data on Information Technology (Influential factors on ethnocentrism: The effect of socioeconomic status, anomie, and authoritarianism)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Fresh data on Information Technology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Freiburg, Germany, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "This study examines the relation of dimensions of ethnocentrism with socio-structural factors such as socioeconomic status (SES), feelings of anomie, and authoritarianism. Using clustered sampling, 500 students were selected from ten high schools in Ahvaz, Iran."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from University Medical Center, "Results of structural equation modeling showed that SES has a direct positive effect on ethnocentrism and an indirect effect through anomie and authoritarianism. Similarly, anomie mediates the effect of SES on authoritarianism. Anomie was found to have an indirect effect on dimensions of ethnocentrism via authoritarianism. Findings confirmed the proposed conceptual path model, which is consistent with findings from other countries."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The influence of feelings of anomie in the model is highlighted since it has a very important effect on dimensions of ethnocentrism."
