  • Reports an error in "Factor Structure and Factorial Invariance of the Multidimensional Acculturative Stress Inventory" by Linda G. Castillo, Miguel A. Cano, Myeongsun Yoon, Eunju Jung, Elissa J. Brown, Byron L. Zamboanga, Su Yeong Kim, Seth J. Schwartz, Que-Lam Huynh, Robert S. Weisskirch and Susan Krauss Whitbourne (Psychological Assessment, Advanced Online Publication, Mar 2, 2015, np). The institutional affiliation for Seth J. Schwartz was incorrectly listed as Miami University. Seth J. Schwartz is at the University of Miami. All versions of this article have been corrected. (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record 2015-08361-001.) Using a national data set, this study examined the factor structure and factorial invariance of the Multidimensional Acculturative Stress Inventory (MASI) across Latino and Asian Americans, gender, and nativity (U.S.- vs. foreign-born). Results showed that a 4-factor model of acculturative stress provided good fit to the data. Tests of factorial invariance provided evidence of measurement equivalence across all of the groupings tested. These findings suggest that the MASI operationalizes acculturative stress in an equivalent manner across Latino and Asian American students, gender, and nativity.
