ABSTRACT

This study examines factors affecting residential satisfaction by region in Gyeonggi-do, Korea. It is assumed that spatial characteristics of a region may significantly influence the residential environment, and the regions sharing similar spatial ones such as commuting distance, natural environment, and land use, have homogeneous living environments. Using a clustering analysis of the 2002 metropolitan household travel pattern, 6-regional groups are made, and the spatial characteristics are analyzed. The factors affecting residential satisfaction by the groups are sequentially disclosed through a categorical least square analysis thereafter. The result shows that spatial characteristics as well as individual ones, of the regional groups may determine factors affecting the residential satisfaction. In addition, some factors such as educational environment in group 1, job accessibility in group 6, have negative relationships with residential satisfaction. It can be interpreted that there is a strategical residential selection process in terms that an individual selects a better living condition trading off educational environment or job accessibility. That is, it is a kind of utility maximization process. For this reason, it is suggested that regional policy makers must strengthen their strong points instead of following other policies in adjacent regions which spatial characteristics are dissimilar, to make better living environments for the residents.
