The present study aims to measure the attitudes of Filipino students toward American life by use of the Thurstone technique. Current literature in the field of race relations was searched for suitable brief statements or comments on American life made by Filipino students. Such studies were examined as the Pacific Coast Race Relations Survey, Social Distance Studies, and unpublished reports of Oriental Student Conferences in the United States. These statements in turn were submitted and sorted by fifty Filipino students selected at random from the Directory of Filipino Students in the United States, 1931.
