This paper reports the results of the validation of a belief-based measure (scale) of attitudes towards urban littering. Two different studies (overall N = 530) evaluated the dimensional structure, internal coherence and convergent validity of the scale. A set of 10 statements (items) were eventually identified demonstrating acceptable levels of internal coherence, and statistically significant correlations with an adjective-based measure of attitudes towards littering and with measures of other relevant factors such as the general perceived seriousness of the problem, the perceived harmfulness of littering for city life, and the fairest amount of monetary sanction. The scale can be used in future studies to assess respondents’ overall positive/negative view of this particular issue.

Abstract

This paper reports the results of the validation of a belief-based measure (scale) of attitudes towards urban littering. Two different studies (overall N = 530) evaluated the dimensional structure, internal coherence and convergent validity of the scale. A set of 10 statements (items) were eventually identified demonstrating acceptable levels of internal coherence, and statistically significant correlations with an adjective-based measure of attitudes towards littering and with measures of other relevant factors such as the general perceived seriousness of the problem, the perceived harmfulness of littering for city life, and the fairest amount of monetary sanction. The scale can be used in future studies to assess respondents’ overall positive/negative view of this particular issue.
