Summary

Communities, defined as either physical or sociocultural entities, vary widely in reported levels of resident satisfaction. Dimensions of community characteristics were studied to assess their relative importance to resident community satisfaction. A questionnaire about various community characteristics such as social life, physical characteristics, services, and opportunities, was administered to college students (N=138) from a variety of hometowns. Results indicated that issues of maintenance and attractiveness were most important as well as service and opportunity elements. Concerns relating to social support and cohesion identified a relatively small percentage of the variance associated with community satisfaction. These results may apply, however, to relatively young, mobile, and better educated individuals from small towns. (RC)
