The outline of the proposed method is as follows. 1) In the survey, it is necessary to evaluate "attractiveness" and "dissatisfaction" as different items. 2) In the analysis by SEM, these two items are used as intermediate variables which explain causal effect from evaluation items of each viewpoint to comprehensive evaluation. The proposed method was applied to the three survey cases "regional environment","public facility" and "large-scale park", several findings on the methodology of survey and analysis were obtained.
