Abstract

This study presents public awareness of environmental issues in Tokat province of Turkey. The effective sample size was 300. Questionnaire was carried out between January and May 2008. Chi-square test (χ2) was used while analyzing the relationship between socioeconomic characteristics and environmental conscious. Statistically significant relationship was found between separating domestic waste at home and education level (χ2 =19.493, df=12, P=0.077). Similarly, there was a statistically significant relationship between gender and separating domestic waste at home (χ2 =8.276, df =3, P= 0.041). This study revealed that no statistically significant relationship was found between occupation of the respondents and separating domestic waste at home (χ2 =25.039, df=18, P=0.124), nor between area of residence and separating domestic waste at home (χ2 =13.640, df=9, P=0.136).
