Nexus between Human Values and Overall Satisfaction with the Urban Environment. A Non-Lineal Partial Least Square Path Modeling. Argentine Cities Case

Hector Oscar Nigro, Sandra Elizabeth Gonzalez Cisaro


In this paper, we examine the relationship between Human Values and the Urban Environment, and how values are behaviorally instantiated in different environments, through Non-Linear Structural Equation Model based on Partial Least Square. Beginning with a unified framework of the study of values, we analyze its organization, antecedents, covariates and presumed consequences that emerge from the data. Schwartz Model is used because it has a coherent and flexible structure with the measure instrument that has been evolved. Ten categories of Human Values and two dimensions are used to evaluate the Urban Environment. We will prove that the Human Value Conservation, through the dimensions: Conformity, Security and Tradition depends on the perceptions of the Urban Environment, specifically on the dimension Consumption/Esthetic and Social Cohesion. We postulate tentatively that the Human Value Self-Enhancement, through the subdimensions Achievement and Power, it is a variable, which in short and long time, impacts on the Perception of the Urban Environment, specifically on the Perception of the System of Generation and Distribution of Habitat Resource.
