dc.description.abstractThis dissertation examines the role that technology, talent, and tolerance play in community satisfaction. After an introductory chapter, chapter two begins with an examination of the concept of community satisfaction and its reliability in a world of quantitative measures, such as GDP. Through a study of multi-group confirmatory analysis, the study analyzes the invariance of the factor structure of overall community satisfaction. Chapter Three and Four focus on the concept of community satisfaction integrated into the framework of Richard Florida’s 3Ts – technology, talent, and tolerance. Through a multi-level statistical approach, the effect of the 3Ts is assessed on domains of community satisfaction. The final chapter briefly reviews the findings of the quantitative chapters as well as the importance of continued research in this area.
