The purpose of the study is to examine the relation between the ethnic identity status and other-group orientation of Chinese young adolescent immigrants who currently live in the U. S. and their psychological adjustment. Psychological adjustment is reflected by two indicators: self-esteem and depression. From four selected cities, twenty-three 12-15 years old Chinese immigrant youth who were born in China and currently lived in the U. S. participated in the study. The results indicate that Chinese youth immigrants with higher ethnic identity have higher self-esteem and lower depression. The results also indicate that Chinese youth immigrants' ethnic identity is more relevant to their psychological adjustment than other-group orientation.
