ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study pertaining to the comparative importance of various urban characteristics in predicting the location satisfaction of relocated employees. A total of 405 U.S. employees and their spouses were evaluated. The results indicated that prior familiarity with the new city has the strongest influence on location satisfaction. The turnover rate and the ratio of housing cost to family income were the significant urban factors indicated by the respondents. Employment status of the spouse was also a significant factor.
