ABSTRACT

Authors here examine differences in residents’ perceptions on casino development between Kangwon Land, Korea and Colorado, USA. A factor analysis was used to delineate underlying dimensions of casino impacts and then regression analysis was employed to investigate relationship between casino impacts and support based on a social exchange theory. The results of regression analysis indicate that positive social impact, positive economic impact, and negative social impact(indirect costs) had an effect on residents’ support for the casino development. Furthermore, Z-test show that coefficients of positive social impact and negative environmental impact were significantly different between the casino residents.
