Adjustment (dependent variable) consisted of six indicators: Neighborhood Involvement, Extent of Happiness, Nostalgia for Home, Extent of Worry, Anxiety, and Anomie. The intervening variable consisted of five indicators: Achievement, Aspiration, Peer Group Involvement, Relation to Relatives, and Fatalism.Two hundred and eighty students from five different universities, institutes, and academies in Bandung participated. The instrument used was a questionnaire. Data was collected in February, 1973. Statistical procedures utilized were: Chi-Square, analyses of variance, t-test and the Pearson product moment correlation.The main hypothesis tested was: Ethnic group identity will significantly influence the adjustment of the migrants (students) and the families in the area of destination. Eleven sub-hypotheses were also tested. The related hypothesis tested was: There will be a correlation between the intervening variables and the Independent variables.
