ABSTRACT
The main purpose of this study is to compare two indexes or measures of xenophobia through a replication study. Both indexes developed by Díez Nicolas and Cea d'Ancona have been applied to a telephone survey questionnaire for residents of Andalusian municipalities having a high density of non-EU foreigners. After a descriptive, correlational and explanatory analysis of the results, the main conclusion suggests that both indices are quite similar, although based on different evaluative, theoretical and methodological principles. Therefore, the selection of either index depends on the parsimony or simplicity principle.
