Abstract: This exploratory study analyzed residents' attitudes toward high-rise condominium living in relation to: (1) socioeconomic and housing-related characteristics, and (2) social, physical and environmental aspects of the condominium. The random sample consisted of 260 condominium owner-residents living in metropolitan San Juan, Puerto Rico, during November, 1980. Data collected from homemakers by scheduled interviews were analyzed using frequency counts, percentages, means, standard deviations, modes, Kendall's tau correlation coefficients, t-tests, analyses of variance, and multiple regression analyses. Analyses of socioeconomic variables showed that slightly over half of the households were composed of married couples and about one third of singles living alone. A typical husband-wife household was composed of two or three members with a male reference person whose age ranged between 26 to 45 years and a spouse the same age or younger. The reference person and the spouse were well educated; 73 and 60 percent respectively had a college degree. Over half of the households had a yearly income of $20,000 or more.
