dc.descriptionAn Applied Research Project Submitted to the Department of Political Science, Texas State University, in Partial Fulfillment for the Requirements for the Degree of Masters of Public Administration, Fall 2011.en_US
dc.description.abstractPurpose: The purpose of this research study is to explore the most prominent factors impacting students' attitudes toward immigration. Previous research has linked economic status, perception of the economy, race, age, and political ideology as factors that influence immigration attitudes.
Methodology: To test the strength of the relationships existent between each of the independent variables (economic status, perception of the economy, race, age, and political ideology) and the dependent variable of immigration attitudes, an online questionnaire with close-ended questions was sent to a sample of students across various majors at Texas State University.
Results: The bivariate analysis, descriptive statistics and chi square tests demonstrated that that most students have slightly more liberal attitudes. It demonstrated that there is an association between the independent variables and attitudes toward immigration.
