Abstract

A questionnaire survey was administered to adult residents of three locales: a large city (Kitakyushu city); a small city (ObuseTown); and a rural village (Yusuhara town), in order to clarify the hierarchical structure of health related factors of housing and regional environment dependent on urban structure and scale. As a result of structural equation modeling, health related factorsmodel in Yusuhara was shown that 35% of residents' overall health may depend on their housing and regional environment, and it was the largest percentage of three locales. Besides, differences were found among the health related factors structure. These results indicate that design guidelines for health promotion that correspond to the urban structure and scale will be required.
