Summary: The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is asignificant difference between the reported self-concepts of childrenliving in one-parent homes and children living in two-parent homes. Inaddition, the variables of sex and grade level were investigated todetermine whether there is a significant difference between the reportedself-concepts of males and females in grades one and three. Based on the population studied, the findings of an analysis ofvariance, a multivariate analysis of variance, and the Fisher t-test allindicated and supported that there is a statistically significantdifference, at the .05 level, between the reported self-concepts ofchildren living in one-parent and two-parent homes. Children from two-parenthomes had a considerably higher mean, 44.6, as compared to a 39.1mean for children from one-parent homes. The findings indicated that there is a statistically significant difference between the reportedself-concepts of male and female students in the primary grades. Femaleshad a mean of 44.4 as compared to a 39.3 mean for males. There was nostatistically significant difference between first and third graders withmeans of 42.0 and 41.7 respectively. Implications of these conclusions pertain specifically to thesample included in this study; limitations imposed by definition and byselection should be observed before making broad application of thefindings to populations which are not closely similar in design.
