Anderson, P. (2012). Measuring masculinity in an afro-caribbean context. Social and Economic Studies, 61(1), 49.
This paper proposes a new scale for the measurement of masculinity, with special reference to Afro-Caribbean males. The scale which is labeled the Macho Scale focuses on masculine identity and gender relations. The macho scale achieved an alpha level of .82 based on a survey of 1,14:1 fathers in four Jamaican communities , and is shown to have a high level of convergent validity. The paper seeks to situate this analysis within the wider literature on the Afro-Caribbean family and gender relations, and current policy concerns in regard to gender socialization , domestic violence and crime.
