Spatial and Class Differences in Lifestyles—A Case Study in Haifa
AbstractThis paper is a summary of a study, one of a series of lifestyle studies using the value stretch model. It reveals the lifestyle attributes of Jewish residents of three Haifa neighborhoods located along the northern slope of Mount Carmel. The basic assumption was that the three neighborhoods differ in their socio-economic characteristics according to their location along the Mount Carmel northern slop, with the upper class located at the Carmel's highest elevation along the Carmel's watershed The analysis revealed that the socio-economic characteristics had a significant effect on the values assigned to the lifestyle attributes, and also determined the effect of the gaps between the values on the interviewee's propensity to postpone the attainment of his/her preference or expectation.
