Abstract

The growing body of newcomer networks in recent years calls for a better understanding of the specific characteristic of such an emerging phenomenon. Employing a multicultural sample drawn from newly formed networks, this current study examines the antecedent effects of attitudinal variables on homophilic tendencies. Findings suggest that individuals who have strong ethnic identity salience or who are high in academic self-efficacy show less national homophic tendencies; individuals high in ethnocentrism are less likely to show national homophily. The findings of this study contribute to the homophily literature and broader literature on networks. Practical implications and limitations are also discussed.
