A citywide interview of Taipei residents in 1996 provided insight into residents' attitudes towards the siting of city facilities. Taipei residents expressed a modest concern over facility siting and expressed concern over the government's effectiveness in dealing with the facility siting information. Factor analysis revealed that five sub-scales exist for facility siting attitudes: psychological, social equity, political decision, motivation, and action. Correlation analysis indicated that bivariate relationships can be found between social characteristics and facility siting factors. Gender, education, age, and family income were found to show bivariate relationships with all the five facility siting factors, with the relationship between family income and psychological dropped to non significance when the effects of the other variables were held constant. Years of residence in our study showed no significant relationships with facility sting factors.
