dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an effort to explain the relation between social psychological change in social group identity and political preference. There are many types of group identity and I have chosen to work specifically with ethnic identity of Puerto Ricans who live in the United States and its effects on their political preference as the status or self-determination issue of Puerto Rico. Specifically, this study takes a look at this issue by focusing on the relationship between three types of social psychological adaptations; Assimilation, Acculturation and Ethnic Resilience; and the preference for the three traditional political status options for Puerto Rico: Statehood, Independence and Commonwealth. The option of Free Association, which is currently gaining popularity, was not included in this study because it was not available in the data set.
