The Effect of Urban Life on Traditional Values
Fischer, Claude S.
Social Forces, 53, 3, 420-432, Mar 75
Three models are elaborated that predict an association between urbanism and nontraditional behavior. Secondary analysis of American survey data on religiosity, church attendance, and attitudes toward alcohol and birth control confirm the general urbanism-deviance association and suggest the accuracy of the model which regards such behavior as due to the generation of and consequent influence of innovative urban subcultures.
