Attitudes of college students toward interracial dating
Responses to Strongly Agree and Agree were combined as were responses to Strongly Disagree and Disagree.Individuals who circled Neither Agree nor Disagree were eliminated from the analysis.Explanations include more benefits from blacks joining the majority than vise versa, the greater number of whites available to blacks than vise versa, and the greater exposure of blacks to the white culture than vise versa.
The IDMM measure conceptualized several important components of attitudes toward interracial marriage into measurement on the scale of 1 to 5 in order to assess ones' attitudes towards intermarriage. Scholars also conducted studies to show that an immigrant who lives in a heterogeneous environment has higher tendency to marry interracially (Betty 1990).
This relatively low percentage of interracial marriages has been stable for decades.
However, increased individualism, tolerance for diversity, and greater minority enrollment in colleges and universities may result in more approving attitudes of college students toward interracial relationships.

Attitudes Toward Interracial Relationships Among College Students: Race, Class, Gender, and Perceptions of Parental Views. doi:10.1177/0021934713507580]Literature Review In past studies on correlation between ages and attitude towards interracial dating, some scholars found out that attitudes of the youth about interracial dating are more positive than the youths' perceptions of their parents' attitudes toward interracial dating (Field, Kimuna &Straus 2013). J Field suggested that youths especially college students have less ethnic endogamy than its older generation.
Previous research suggests that attitudes toward interracial marriage have a strong relationship with the age of the subjects (Field, Kimuna &Straus 2013). Professor of Arizona State University Zhenchao Qian's (2001) study states that endogamy of immigrants varies based the education level of the immigrants.
