dc.description.abstractMeasurement issues and structure of environmental concerns (ECs) were assessed in this study. The present paper compared two different scales used in previous research to measure beliefs about awareness of consequences (ACs), or concerns, for egoistic, altruistic, and biospheric-valued objects. 110 participants from two separated Universities in Myanmar completed both the ACs and ECs scales. The findings have theoretical and practical implications for research into ECs, and for applications of the value-belief-norm (extended norm activation) theory. The important finding was demonstrated that the EC scale is superior to the AC Beliefs scale in terms of reliability and dimensionality of sub-scales in Myanmar samples. As the main purpose of this study was to establish which scale of Western developed measures of environmental problems is most suitable in Myanmar, in terms of dimensionality and reliability of its sub-scale, a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was conducted again in order to test the ECs scale factor structure. The three factor structure model gave a significantly better fit to the ECs data than the uni-dimensional structure and two different factor structure models. Moreover, the CFA results provided that the three-factor structure model was an excellent acceptable model of fit. Thus, in order to further study the environmental attitudes, values, intention, and behavior of the people in Myanmar, the ECs scale would be essential, applicable, and beneficial for further research.en
