Dissatisfaction withdwelling environments in an aging society: An empirical analysisof theKanto area in Japan
AbstractWe conducted a questionnaire survey in the Kanto area regarding peoplefs dissatisfaction with various aspects of their dwelling environment. Dissatisfaction with access to transportation, shopping and medical facilities are important reasons for moving house. Probit model estimation implies that economic wealth improves satisfaction with transportation, shopping and medical facilities, but it does not reduce dissatisfaction with living costs whereas aging increases not only the satisfaction with transportation, shopping and medical facilities, but also with living costs and family and acquaintances. The results also imply that Japanfs aging population does not present crucial problems for housing in the Kanto area.
