Rural Urban Differences: Myth or Reality?
Napier, Ted L.
The major purpose of this bulletin was to discuss the relationship of place of residence to selected attitudinal and socio-economic characteristics. A theoretical model of social scale was presented and subjected to empirical test, using attitudinal data collected from rural and urban residents in several Ohio communities. Major variables were community identification, community satisfaction, physical mobility, educational commitment, familism, socio-economic status, and value orientation. Data was collected by systematic sampling using a structured questionnaire based on Likert-type scales. Place of residence appeared to remain a factor in the explanation of attitudinal differences on a micro-level basis, but is of less utility in explaining differences in other social phenomena on a macro-level basis.
