Abstract (summary)

The purpose of this study was to explore the factor difference between the Japanese version of Abbreviated Multidimensional Acculturation Scale (AMAS-ZABB-JP) (AMAS-ZABB: Zea et al., 2003) and the Multigroup Ethnic Identity Measure (MEIM-JP) (MEIM: Phinney, 1992), with Japanese sojourners and immigrants to the U.S. This is a pilot study to translate the scale into Japanese using methods recommended by Marìn and Marìn (1991). The participants for this study were 273 Japanese sojourners and immigrants to the U.S. The results indicated that the AMAS-ZABB-JP may have sufficient psychometrics regarding content, construct and concurrent validity and reliability. In order to increase its significance, further studies are necessary.
