CIVALERO, Luciana; ALONSO, Daniela  y  BRUSSINO, Silvina. Evaluation of the prejudice towards immigrants: Argentine adaptation of the scale of subtle and blatant prejudice. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.1, pp.119-133. ISSN 1688-4094.

Abstract: The aim of this article is to analyze the psychometric properties of the scale of Blatant and Subtle Prejudice, developed originally by Pettigrew and Meertens (1995), in the Argentine context. This scale has five dimensions: two that evaluate blatant aspects and three that measure subtle aspects of prejudice. We took self-selected non-probabilistic sample of 856 tertiary and university students from the cities of Córdoba (N= 253), Buenos Aires (N= 193), Salta (N= 200) and Neuquén (N= 210). A confirmatory analysis was performed in order to access the scale structure and the Cronbach's Alpha coefficient was estimated to evaluate internal consistency. We also performed a convergent test through a correlation analysis between our scale and two variables whose correlation to prejudice was previously proven. The results supported the five dimensions structure proposed by the original authors, with 18 items and satisfactory internal consistency and validity indicators. In addition, favorable evidence of convergent validity was obtained.

Palabras clave : subtle prejudice; blatant prejudice; discrimination; ethnic prejudice; immigrants.
