dc.description.abstractPurpose. The purpose of this preliminary research is to explore if demographics affect participants’ attitude towards the characteristics of New Urbanism. Methodology. To achieve this purpose, the literature will be reviewed to establish the central characteristics of New Urban communities. Based on the findings of the literature, a survey will be administered to gauge the attitudes of the author’s “friends” and their “friends” on Facebook to determine their attitudes towards the characteristics of New Urbanism and to record their demographics. Finally, those attitudes and demographics will be complied to establish if demographics affect the subjects’ attitude towards the characteristics of New Urbanism. Results. Overall, the exploratory research indicates that demographics play a trivial role in the participants’ attitude towards the characteristics of New Urbanism. Conclusion. The initial results indicate that demographics for this non-random sampling do not affect how a participant values the characteristics of a New Urban community. A scientific study should be conducted to see if these preliminary results represent the population or if different conclusions can be made.en_US
