A final analysis examined actual experience of discrimination as a potential mediator of the relationship between visibility and quality of contacts, on the one hand, and PGDD on the other.
The findings, presented in Table 6, indicate a mediation effect: the relationship between (higher) visibility as foreigner and (reduced) PGDD became non-significant and the relationship between (lack of) good quality contacts and (reduced) PGDD was substantially reduced once actual level of discrimination was taken into account.
Beyond demonstrating the PGDD in groups with a transient minority status, the present findings also shed some light on variables that differentially affect its magnitude.
In addition, the measure of PGDD used in the present study differed from previous research by asking respondents to make a comparative single-item rating of the extent to which they felt less, more or equally discriminated against than members of their in-group in general rather than obtaining separate ratings of self and group discrimination.
