Author:Jill Levenson, Ph.D.

Subject:Re: race, ethnicity and culture

I have been told by an IRB that researchers are to use the US census definitions for race: http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/meta/long_68178.htm and ethnicity: http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/fedreg_1997standards/ Jill Levenson, Ph.D. ________________________________ From: Todd McDonald To: Child Maltreatment Researchers ; child-maltreatment-research-L@cornell.edu; iv-epartners listserv Sent: Tue, February 2, 2010 4:27:57 PM Subject: race, ethnicity and culture Although these terms are used in all research, there seems to be confusion on what each term means? in fact they are often used interchangeably, which seems problematic. Is there a good resource that will help distinguish race from ethnicity from culture? Todd McDonald
