SOUZA, Luana Elayne Cunha de et al. A hierarchical (multicomponent) model of in-group identification: adaptation of a measure to the Brazilian context. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2019, vol.32, 19.  Epub Nov 25, 2019. ISSN 1678-7153.

The aim of this study is to adapt the multidimensional in-group identification scale (MGIS) to the Brazilian context by gathering evidence of its psychometric properties. A total of 663 people from two samples participated in the study. In sample 1, we measured the identification of Brazilians with the region of the country where they live. In sample 2, we measured the identification of students with the university which they attend. Confirmatory factor analyses were performed on both samples to compare the models previously proposed by the original authors of the measure. The obtained results confirmed the validity of the hierarchical and multidimensional factor structure proposed by the original authors. The scale proposed here can be used to measure multiple dimensions of ingroup identification in Brazil.
