RELOCATION DUE TO HIGHWAY TAKINGS: A DIACHRONIC ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC EFFECTS
The major findings and conclusions of this research suggest that in general, relocates in Virginia voiced a favorable opinion of the relocation program, the Department, and its personnel. An examination of attitudes by socioeconomic variables showed that owners were more likely to have negative attitudes about the relocation program than were the tenants. In addition, length of occupancy in the original dwelling and age of respondent were significantly related to attitudes about fairness and treatment. Data analysis indicates that relocation appears to definitely affect community attachment. Overall satisfaction with relocation housing was quite positive, although the longer an individual has lived in an original dwelling the harder it is to please him with a new one. Analysis also suggests, that the elderly have greater difficulty adjusting to the impact of relocation.
