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. One hundred and ten 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 that the EC scale is superior to the AC Beliefs scale in terms of reliability and dimensionality of sub-scales in Myanmar samples. 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
