Statistically significant differences DO arise among 12 demographic traits investigated, some of them surprising and all of them interesting.
Cuenca, Ecuador (PRWEB) August 07, 2018
CitiesBeautiful.org recently surveyed people from around the world on their choices of the most beautiful cities. The survey respondents were also asked their basic demographic profile. CitiesBeautiful.org retained an independent statistics professor to investigate any differences in choice of cities as compared to the demographic profiles. The results are summarized in the video https://youtu.be/allVvwPFZDY
Statistically significant differences DO arise among 12 demographic traits investigated, some of them surprising and all of them interesting. The results have important implications for tourists, the travel industry, government agencies that promote tourism, and various other disciplines (city planning, architecture, behavioral science, and so on).
Beyond the YouTube video summary, the survey results of the demographic analyses are available in an article entitled “Demographic Differences in Perceptions of Beautiful Cities”. The article can be read and downloaded, free of charge, at the CitiesBeautiful.org website.
CitiesBeautiful.org promotes the appreciation of cities around the world. A key feature of the website is a Civic Beauty Rankings test (CBR) – a psychometric questionnaire somewhat like a Myers Briggs personality assessment test – with which website visitors can determine the types of urban places they will find most beautiful. With their test results, visitors then can take customized, interactive map tours of 1,800 beautiful places in cities on six continents.
The CitiesBeautiful.org website contains a considerable amount of additional information. For example, see the website’s “Beautiful Book” tab for a free e-book containing brief biographies on 40 of the most important aesthetic philosophers, architects, city planners, and behavioral psychologists over the last 2,600 years; an identification of 15 "common threads" in their theories of civic beauty; a detailed explanation of the method used for calculating the Cities Beautiful Index (CBI) of each city; and much more!
