One of the conditions that constrains urban areas in their attempts to solve environmental problems is the operation of the political system that manages the area. The nature of the operation could influence the development of political attitudes and, as a result, the development of policies that have environmental consequences. This study looks at the relationship between various political and demographic variables in four different urban contexts for the purposes of isolating any differences that may exist. Most attitudinal research concerning these relationships has ignored this potential contextual influence.
