Abstract

It is now recognized that many attempts to scale environmental phenomena are fraught with difficulties associated with the use of conventional ranking procedures. This study considers the intra-urban residential preferences of 2,246 schoolchildren attending 10 secondary schools in Southend-on-Sea, England, using a modified Bradley-Terry type paired comparison procedure that allows for tied preferences. The results of this experiment are used to suggest that paired comparison procedures may allow more natural and accurate scaling of environmental images than the more restrictive and taxing ranking procedures employed in previous studies.
