Abstract:Although this study is based on correlational data, and no casual inferences can be drawn, this work takes an important step of providing empirical evidence to suggest a systematic link between certain aspects of resident appropriation and positive neighborhood outcomes. This work thus contributes to research on environment-behavior relations by providing some support for an important relationship posited by DS theory. Implications for DS theory and for public housing policy are discussed.
