Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a residential quality index and to test its relationship to residential satisfaction. Factors representing 7 dimensions of residential quality were identified as indexes by using principal component factor analysis. Those factors included environmental safety, planning/landscaping, housing policy, sociocultural environment, public services, housing economics, and physical quality of housing. Of the 7 quality dimensions explored, 5 residential quality indexes‐environmental safety, planning/landscaping, housing policy, sociocultural environment, and physical quality of housing‐were indicated as significant factors in residential satisfaction. 1994 American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences
