Livability Impact on Satisfaction: A Case Study of Public Housing in Montserrado County, Liberia

Edward Boima Jones


This research study sought to explore the issues of livability faced by residents in four affordable housing estates near Monrovia to see the impact livability conditions have on their lives. The research involved both qualitative and quantitative techniques. The qualitative techniques was used to produce information about the quantitative variables coded in SPSS as numerical values. The researcher used correlation and regression analysis to see whether the relationship between the independent variables and dependent variable was significant. Only coefficient at p< 0.01 (two tailed) was considered. The researcher realized that all the livability elements are statistical significant at 5% and proved to be negatively related to satisfactory index. However, the regression showed that environmental and health/safety qualities were not statistically significant. The negative correlation accounted for the fact that a large number of residents were low income earners, subsequently rented the housing units, because they did not have the money to buy the units. These residents could not alter the houses after their choice as they were not the legitimate owners.
