In order to test the hypothesis that Mexican-Americans have more death related concerns appearing in the reports of their dreams 65 Mexican-American (22 males and 43 females) and 243 Anglo-American (10 4 males and 139 females) universi­ty students were given a dream survey in which 12 death-related dreams were included in a 48-item questionnaire. More Mexican-Americans than Anglo-Americans reported having 8 of the 12 death-related dreams at the .05 or .01 level of significance.
