SOCIAL DISTANCE AMONG THE YORUBA OF NIGERIA
Abstract:A modified Bogardus Social Distance Scale was administered to 90 children, of ages ranging from 14 to 16 years, living in a rural area of a part of the Yoruba land. Subjects were to react to five other groups apart from their own. It was found that despite the fact that the subjects and the other groups formed the same ethnic group, subjects expressed a social proximity to their own group and social distance to others in terms of choice of spouses, and a reverse trend was revealed in terms of acceptance of others as employees.
