Many adolescents in the study identify with multiple ethnic groups.

CRCDE data challenge widespread assumptions about ethnic identity. Many adolescents in the study identify with multiple ethnic groups; their identities can shift over the course of a day, a year, and across contexts; and some do not perceive their ethnicity to be a significant component of who they are (for example, some provided the response "human being" when asked about their ethnic group).
