I examined whether the Revised Sociosexual Orientation Inventory (SOI-R) was invariant between Hispanic/Latina and Non-Hispanic White (NHW) undergraduate women. I performed confirmatory factor analysis to assess model fit and used increasingly restrictive models to test invariance. I included 208 Hispanic/Latina women and 190 NHW women. The CFI and RMSEA model fit statistics (CFI=0.98, RMSEA=0.06 (90% confidence interval=0.04-0.08, p-value=0.16) showed that the model fit well. I constrained factor loadings to be equal in both groups to test metric invariance. I observed non-significant differences in model fit (deltaX2 (9)=88.67, p>0.95, deltaCFI=0.003, deltaRMSEA=-0.011). I also constrained intercepts to be equal to test scalar invariance. I observed non-significant differences in model fit (deltaX2 (9)=92.08, p>0.24, deltaCFI=-0.001, deltaRMSEA=-0.002). I also constrained residual variances to be equal to test residual invariance. I observed non-significant differences in model fit (deltaX2 (9)=112.49, p>0.19, deltaCFI=-0.002, deltaRMSEA=-0.002). The SOI-R is invariant between Hispanic/Latina and NHW undergraduate women.
