A study of community sentiments in relation to attitudes toward tourism development
This article examines residents' sentiments about their community in relation to their perceptions of the impacts of tourism and their support or opposition to tourism. The study was conducted amongst 5 rural counties of Southwest Virginia, USA. A random sample of 2404 residents yielded 1069 responses. Factor analysis demonstrated that residents' sentiments were comprised of two different dimensions: emotional attachment and involvement.
