Urban Planning With The Aid Of Factor Analysis Approach: The Case Of Isfahan Municipality
Nowadays municipalities play an important role in offering urban services to the citizens. To investigate performance of regional municipalities, different data on living situation must be considered. Thus, we face a multivariate analysis. In this research regarding capabilities of "Factor Analysis" technique in the area of multivariate analysis, we used this technique to construct latent factors for comparison of different districts of a city. Along these lines we examined the real case of Isfahan municipality. Isfahan is a major city in Iran. The results of our analysis show that instead of evaluating different variables in each region we can concentrate on two simple and informative criteria representing common welfare situation and development situation in each region. The proposed approach shows which factors are more important for each region of the city and how different regional municipalities can apply cost effective policies to improve their performance.
