Abstract: The objective of this paper is to explore the consistency of racial/skin color declaration of females 15 to 59 years-old in Recife, Brazil. Data come from SRSR - Reproductive Health, Sexuality, and Race. Fieldwork took place in 2002 in Belo Horizonte and Recife and there are 1.106 complete interviews in Recife. The paper compares two forms of race/skin color declaration: self-classification and classification by the interviewer. The answer is pre-coded and the options are white, black, brown, yellow, and indigenous (Brazilian-native). The analysis takes into account whites, browns, and blacks. Results suggest that females who classify themselves as darker than the classification of interviewer have more years of schooling, whereas those who declare to be lighter than the opinion of the interviewer have less years of schooling. Multivariate analysis compares females with consistent versus inconsistent racial/skin color classification. Controlling for age and education, whites have more chance to have consistent declaration if compared to blacks and browns. However, females put into the category negra (blacks + browns) show more consistency than whites.
