Attitudes toward risk, social dominance orientation and perceived scarcity of the opposite sex on Indonesian woman migrant workers

This study aimed to determine the role of social dominance orientation and perceived scarcity of the opposite sex in predicting attitudes toward risks on Indonesian Woman Migrant Workers (IWMW) that will work abroad. The method used for this study was quantitative non-experimental and correlational-predictive by using questionnaires as the measuring instrument. This study involved 258 unmarried IWMW (Mage = 20.089 years old; SDage = 5.142 years old) fostered by National Agency for the Placement and Protection of IWMW (BNP2TKI) and those in shelters. Result of the study shows that social dominance orientation and perceived scarcity of the opposite sex can predict attitudes toward risks on IWMW (R2 = 0.343). Social dominance orientation is able to positively predict attitudes toward risks (β = 0.618; p < 0.01) and perception of the number of opposite sex is able to negatively predict attitudes toward risks (β = -0.159; p < 0.01).
