Adolescents from multi-racial families tend to shift their reported racial category as they move from early adolescence to young adulthood, suggesting that the assumption of race as "fixed" is especially unjustified for multiracial individuals. This finding comes from a study published in the September/October issue of the journal Child Development.
The study was supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Researchers from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill set out to investigate the prevalence and change of multiracial self-identification as adolescents transitioned to young adulthood.
