Using Gordon's (1964) work on the assimilation of minority ethnic groups into majority group cultures, a survey was carried out in localities of high density Asian population in the West Midlands conurbation, G. B. Questions covering many aspects of respondents' experiences and attitudes towards life in Britain, together with questions on their own behaviour and customs, were asked of parents and their young adult children from Hindu, Sikh and Muslim families. Indices assessing three aspects of assimilation, cultural, structural and identificational, were formed. The dyad structure of the sample, and of the data, enabled analyses to be made not only of each generation's responses but also of the responses of related parents and young people. An analysis can thus be made of generation sex and ethnic differences and also dyadic relations. Sex, generation and ethnic differences varied with type of assimilation. There was little relationship between the responses of parents and young persons.
