Does Race Matter among Cuban Immigrants?
An Analysis of the Racial Characteristics of Recent Cuban Immigrants
Resumen: Information on Cuban immigrants from the recent 'Measuring Cuban Opinion Project' survey is used to determine the extent to which race matters. We use multivariate binomial logistic regression models to determine if race can be predicted by key demographic and economic characteristics of the respondents, their use of mass media outlets in Cuba, their evaluation of and integration to the Cuban state and their participation in the dissidence in the island. The conclusion is reached that race cannot be predicted because these immigrants are, in general terms, very similar. However, some racial differences in mode of immigration and likelihood of immigration were found.
