Abstract

Using Multiple Group Analysis, the authors examined whether native and non-native residents in Huangshan, China attach different levels of importance to four tourism impacts (i.e., environmental degradation, loss of tradition and norms, sociocultural expansion, and economic development) when evaluating tourism development. The results revealed significant differences between natives and non-natives in terms of how environmental degradation and loss of tradition and norms affect their satisfaction with tourism development, suggesting that future studies need to assess the potential heterogeneity of residents when interpreting the effects of tourism impacts.

Natives and Non-Natives: Do They Care about the Same Thing in Tourism Development?

Using Multiple Group Analysis, the authors examined whether native and non-native residents in Huangshan, China attach different levels of importance to four tourism impacts (i.e., environmental degradation, loss of tradition and norms, sociocultural expansion, and economic development) when evaluating tourism development. The results revealed significant differences between natives and non-natives in terms of how environmental degradation and loss of tradition and norms affect their satisfaction with tourism development, suggesting that future studies need to assess the potential heterogeneity of residents when interpreting the effects of tourism impacts.
