Attributes of the Community Environment and the Individual's Quality of Life.
Blake, Brian F.; And Others
A random sample of 114 adult residents in different communities rated the importance of various attributes of their community environment in affecting their quality of life. Factor analyses of the ratings reflect five dimensions or value orientations and are labeled as: (1) institutional maintenance, (2) commercial maintenance, (3) personal development, (4) recreation, and (5) relationship. As predicted, only the recreation value orientation is related to individuals' satisfaction with life in their community. The rationale and implications for the relationship between the various value orientations and satisfaction findings are discussed, particularly in the light of past research and theory of environment perception and evaluations.
