Summary

A review of the published empirical literature on families in the several areas of concentrated Mexican American settlement (primarily California, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and various cities in the Midwest) is presented in this paper. Objective is to provide a frame of reference on the sociology of Mexican American families. Variations in family behavior appear to be linked to such factors as socioeconomic status, nativity, age and generation, specific place of residence, and language use patterns. Therefore, this synthesis is concerned with family variance "per se" by considering a number of relevant factors (i.e., age, occupational status, educational attainment, and community of residence). Studies dealing with the following topics are cited: 1) the extended family; 2) family roles; 3) dating and courtship; 4) ritual kinship relations; and 5) intermarriage. The paper is concluded with some general comments on family disorganization and family persistence. (NQ)
