Ethnicity-of-interviewer effects on ethnic respondents

Considerable research has been reported on rece-of-interviewer effects in white/black dichotomies. Little is known, however, about interviewer effects on respondents representing other ethnic groups. This article reports on a 1975 study of ethnicity-of-interviewer effects among four ethnic minorities (Cubans, Chicanos, Native Americans, and Chinese) and suggests that the findings for blacks and whites are generalizable to other ethnic groups as well
