Rural Social Setting: A Denominator in Functional Self-Concept, Family Concept, and Family Interaction.
Harun, Lily Mastura Haji
Rurality has often been equated as to being backwards and non-promising to provide for a bright future. This study aims to identify the levels of self-concept, family concept, and family interaction measures of subjects from the rural and urban social settings of a state in Malaysia. Six hundred and thirty-nine (or two hundred and thirteen families) Malay subjects were administered the Family Interaction-Humanistic Approach Questionnaire (FIHAQ). Each family unit consists of the father, mother, and an adolescent child of either gender. The results indicated that a significant number of subjects from the rural social setting dominate the functionality continuum as opposed to the subjects from the urban social setting who dominate the dysfunctionality continuum.
