The purpose of this study was to identify and compare certain beliefs, called value orientations, that are held by two generations of East Indians residing in the Sutter County area of California. The comparisons involved testing the null hypothesis to the effect that there are no significant differences between the value orientations of the two generations of East Indians.
East Indian students and their parents were questioned about their views regarding the desirable attitude toward action, their views regarding time, their attitude toward nature, and the desirable relationship of man to his fellow man. The instrument employed in gathering the data was the “Schedule,” developed by Florence R. Kluckhohn. The data gathered in the interviews were used to identify the value orientations and were used to test the null hypothesis. The data were further analyzed for any possible relationships according to several categories that included generation, age, sex, length of time in the UNited States, amount of formal education, and amount of material culture.
