Abstract

The objective of this research is to model host community support for tourism development based on the factors found to influence reactions towards it. Using the literature, a tourism support model with hypotheses involving several paths was proposed. Data were collected from five counties surrounding a Virginia (USA) recreation area, and the model and hypothesized paths were tested. The LISREL-8 structural equation analysis package was utilized with maximum likelihood method of estimation in combination with the two-stage process. The findings revealed that the host community support is affected by the level of concern, ecocentric values, utilization of resource base, perceived costs and benefits of the tourism development.
